ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos beefed up their injury-riddled offense Thursday by signing tight end Dante Rosario, a casualty of their final cut-down.
Rookie linebacker Mike Mohamed was released to make room for Rosario, a fifth-year pro who played in both of the Miami Dolphins' games after being cut by the Broncos on Sept. 3. The Dolphins released Rosario on Tuesday.
Rosario has played in 64 games in his career with 82 catches for 894 yards and four touchdowns. He spent his first four seasons in Carolina under current Broncos coach John Fox.
Rookie tight end Julius Thomas was supposed to be the Broncos' emergency wide receiver Sunday but he sprained his right ankle on Denver's first drive, so when Eddie Royal (groin) went down, Tim Tebow lined up as the slot receiver.
