Broncos promote rookie NT Tyrique Jarrett from practice squad to bolster D-line

Two days after waiving Kyle Peko, the Broncos promoted undrafted rookie Tyrique Jarrett from the practice squad, according to a league source, bolstering the team’s thin defensive line for their season opener against the Chargers on Monday night.

Jarrett was signed as a college free agent out of Pittsburgh following the draft and quickly turned heads with his size (6-foot-3, 335 pounds) and raw ability.

“Todd (Davis) and I call him ‘Pot Roast Jr,'” inside linebacker Brandon Marshall said in June.

On Saturday the Broncos waived Peko and announced starting defensive Jared Crick (back) and backup Zach Kerr (knee) would be ruled out of Monday’s opener.

In Crick’s and Kerr’s absence, second-year player Adam Gotsis will start opposite Derek Wolfe , and Domata Peko will anchor the line at nose tackle.
