Brendan Langley: Latches on with Seattle
The Seahawks signed Langley to their practice squad Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
The 2017 third-round pick didn't see game action during the 2019 regular season after he was cut by the Broncos out of training camp. Langley will add depth to the position, and with Malik Turner (concussion) and Jaron Brown (knee) dealing with injury, Langley could get a promotion to the 53-man roster should either be out for Sunday's playoff game against the Eagles....

Brendan Langley: Let go by Denver
The Broncos waived Langley on Friday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
The 2017 third-round pick was working to convert from cornerback to wide receiver in order to reignite his career, but he didn't show well enough to latch on to Denver's initial 53-man roster. He'll at least benefit from extra time to look for a gig elsewhere in the league leading up to Week 1.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Brendan Langley: Updates fans on position move
Langley updated fans via his personal Twitter account Saturday that he's progressing through drills as he seeks a transition to wide receiver.
The video showcases his athleticism and hands, two qualities that were never really in doubt. Langley, who played some receiver at Georgia before transitioning to cornerback full time at Lamar, instead seemed to struggle with putting those traits to good use in games. Perhaps a move to receiver will reignite his career, but it is fair to say that this wasn't what Denver was hoping for when it drafted him at the end of the third round two years ago. With the likes of Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick and DaeSean Hamilton ahead of him, it'll be hard for Langley to join the nucleus of young targets even if Emmanuel Sanders struggles to return from an Achilles injury....

Broncos' Brendan Langley: Moving to wide receiver
Langley will spend his offseason transitioning from cornerback to wide receiver, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Langley made the same change between his freshman and sophomore seasons at Georgia, but he never actually caught a pass and eventually moved back to cornerback after transferring to FCS Lamar. He was selected at No. 101 overall in the 2017 draft primarily on the basis of raw athleticism, as he lit up the combine with a 4.43 40, 123-inch broad jump and 35.5-inch vertical at 6-feet, 201 pounds. The 24-year-old has the appropriate physical specs to play wide receiver, but he'll nonetheless face a difficult transition, presumably battling for one of the final spots on Denver's 53-man roster. Langley has played 260 snaps on special teams and just 108 on defense in 16 NFL appearances.... See More ... See Less

Broncos' Brendan Langley: Making strides in Year 2
Langley has dug into the playbook more and has looked solid in OTAs, Andrew Mason of the Broncos' official site reports.
It was somewhat of a surprise when the Broncos took Langley at the end of the third round out of Lamar in last year's draft. Head coach Vance Joseph, a defensive backs coach by trade, was drawn to his size, speed and ball skills from his time as a wide receiver at Georgia. He didn't get many looks as a rookie and, even with improvements, is unlikely to see the field much beyond special teams in 2018. Veteran Tramaine Brock figures to be the team's third corner behind Chris Harris and Bradley Roby, and the defense has often featured a third safety -- likely Will Parks -- in dime situations. Short of beating out Brock, Langley will probably continue to develop behind the scenes with this year's third-round pick, Isaac Yiadom.... See More ... See Less

Langley (knee) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, Andrew Mason of the Broncos' official site reports.

Broncos' Brendan Langley: Set to sit Sunday
Langley (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Bills, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.
Langley hadn't practiced all week, so it's no surprise that he isn't playing Sunday. He'll likely need a week of practice at some capacity before he dresses for a game, while Bradley Roby (foot) will likely continue to slot in if he's healthy enough to play. If Roby is out as well, expect to see Lorenzo Doss play a significant amount of snaps.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Brendan Langley: Won't play Sunday
Langley (knee) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Langley barely got some game action in during Week 1 before he had to leave with an injury. He was expected to earn a fair amount of defensive snaps in the nickel scheme, as well as rotate in as a return man. Lorenzo Doss may be given more snaps Sunday, but expect Bradley Roby to pick up most of the slack left by Langley.... See More ... See Less
