The Denver Broncos made another pre-camp roster move on Wednesday afternoon, picking up former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marlon Brown.
Bringing Brown to Denver reunites him with head coach Gary Kubiak, who spent 2014 as the offensive coordinator in Baltimore.
Brown played three seasons with the Ravens, started 15 games and played in a total of 38 regular-season contests from 2013-15. During that time he caught 87 passes for 891 yards and seven touchdowns.
A majority of Brown’s production came in the 2013 season, in which he made 12 of his 15 career starts. That year, he amassed 524 yards and all seven of his career touchdowns on 49 receptions.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Brown has been signed to a one-year deal.
An undrafted product out of the University of Georgia, Brown will wear jersey No. 89.
The move comes as part of final pre-camp tweaking to the Bronocs lineup. Yesterday, the team added linebacker Darnell Sankey and cut long snapper Nathan Theus.

To make room for Brown, the team announced today that they were waiving running back Cyrus Gray, who was a reserve-future signee but was limited during the last two weeks of OTAs.
Gray missed the entire 2015 NFL season after being waived by the Kansas City Chiefs on July 30, 2015. He suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament on Nov. 9, 2014 and hasn’t played in a regular-season game since.
The running back carried the football 24 times for 99 yards and added 64 yards on nine catches during limited action with the Chiefs from 2012-14, but also contributed on special teams.
Denver Broncos training camp begins tomorrow and runs through August 17. The team’s first pre-season game is just two weeks away, when they’ll travel to Chicago to take on the Bears on August 11.
