Nathan Palmer WR DEN 1 Month
Broncos signed WR Nathan Palmer, S John Boyett, OG Ben Garland, OT Paul Cornick, DE Hall Davis, DE John Youboty and WR Greg Wilson to reserve/future contracts.
Palmer is a third-year undrafted free agent out of Northern Illinois. He caught one pass in five games for the Colts in 2012. A 2013 sixth-round pick of the Colts, Boyett was cut loose shortly after final cuts after getting popped on multiple drinking-related charges.
Nathan Palmer WR DEN 7 Months
Colts WR Nathan Palmer will be sidelined 4-6 weeks with a sprained MCL.
Palmer was active just five times last season, but kept his roster spot after being promoted from the practice squad in September. In January, GM Ryan Grigson called Palmer "about as explosive a receiver we have." He struggled to stay healthy this preseason, however, catching just one pass in two games. Injured reserve is a possibility.
