Sixteen years into a vagabond NFL career that most recently featured a championship season, punter Mitch Berger has come full circle.

Berger had his first practice Wednesday with the Denver Broncos since being signed this week as the replacement for second-year pro Brett Kern, who was waived. It was a homecoming of sorts for the Canadian-born Berger, who starred at the University of Colorado in the early 1990s.

The Broncos are counting on Berger to steady their punting game. He'll make his Broncos debut Sunday, when Denver (6-0) visits the Baltimore Ravens (3-3).
