DENVER (AP) _ The Denver Broncos continued their overhaul of special teams Monday, signing tight end Mike Leach and wide receiver Herb Haygood.
Leach, in his third season, will take over long-snapping duties. Matt Lepsis, Denver’s starter at right tackle, had been the long-snapper through the first eight games this season.
Leach played in 19 games with Tennessee his first two seasons, mostly on special teams. He was waived by Chicago in August.
Haygood, Denver’s fifth-round draft pick this year, will likely take over kickoff duties for Kevin Kasper, who was released last week. Haygood had been on Denver’s practice squad.
Last week, Denver released punter Tom Rouen, who played 10 years with the team.
The Broncos also added wide receiver Charlie Adams to their practice squad. Adams, signed by Denver as an undrafted free agent, spent one day on the Broncos’ practice squad before being released on Sept. 4.
