Kalif Raymond Promoted To Denver Broncos Active Roster
By Ben Swanson
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The Broncos have promoted wide receiver Kalif Raymond to the active roster in the wake of placing fullback Andy Janovich on injured reserve.
Kubiak spoke highly of Raymond’s understanding of the offense, in addition to a potential role on special teams, as reasons for his decision to activate the rookie receiver.
"He's just done such a good job," Kubiak said. "He understands what we're doing offensively and he can go in there and play in some of our three- and four-wide-receiver sets. So we'll give him a chance to help us out."
