Broncos sign a guy with more addresses than receptions

Richard Gordon has more teams than catches in his NFL career.

But that should also tell you something about the role teams want him to play.

The Broncos signed the journeyman blocking tight end yesterday, bringing him back after a short stint with the team last year.

He has four receptions for 14 yards and a touchdown (from then-Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer in a comeback win over the Steelers in 2012) in his five NFL seasons.

He began with the Raiders as a sixth-round pick, and has also spent time with the Steelers, Chiefs, Titans, Chiefs again, Broncos, Ravens and now Broncos again.

Gordon was with the Broncos for five games last season, but was waived in December when injuries left them short at other positions. He then did a short stint with the Ravens but was cut the week before Christmas.
