Really cool for me to see this guy get a shot for the Broncos. He is from the small school of Dake. A college in Des Moines, IA. Not many football players have made it from Drake. Billy Cundiff the Cowboys kicker is one that did.

Saubert was drafted a few years ago and has bounced around a bit... A guy who plays pretty well on special teams as well. I think he has a good chance to stick here as a depth TE and ST's guy. We have two good young TE's but we aren't real deep at TE. I still wish Fumagalli would get another camp here and he still could but very doubtful after not tendering him. I think Saubert offers more though as he contributes on ST's and I think that is probably his key to staying around in the NFL.. A depth TE who can cover kicks. Be interesting to se if Fort stays healthy but I feel like it has been quite awhile since we have had a TE who can also help out on special teams so that gives Saubert an edge when the roster cutdown hits.

Glad to have him. The trend of beefing up Special Teams continues. This is the biggest change in the new regime - a very conscious effort to get athletes who can perform on special teams - especially players from the offense.

Shame he isn't a long snapper too.

No thanks! That was perhaps our easiest cut this offseason outside of Driskel once we finally had some sort of backup plan.
