Grayson was waived by the Broncos on Thursday, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.
Grayson's last regular season action in the NFL was in 2015 with the Saints. The Colorado State product signed a future/reserve contract with Denver in Jan. of 2019 after spending most of the 2018 season on their practice squad. Wide receiver Chad Hansen was also waived by Denver on Thursday, likely to make room for undrafted free agents.
Grayson spent the majority of the season on the Broncos' practice squad and will remain with the team throughout the offseason, giving him a chance to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster next season. The Colorado State product will turn 28 this offseason.
Grayson agreed to join the Broncos' practice squad Thursday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
The 27-year-old was originally cut by the Falcons to begin 2018 after struggling throughout the preseason slate. The Broncos had space for a quarterback after the team cut Chad Kelly on Wednesday. Grayson has never seen regular-season NFL action in his career.
Grayson missed the cut for Atlanta's 53-man roster on Saturday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.
The fourth-year man out of Colorado State struggled mightily throughout the preseason slate, completing 36.8 percent of his passes and finishing with a dismal 3.5 yards per attempt average. Grayson's best chance to make an impression came against the Jets in Week 1, when he completed three-of-10 attempts for 38 yards (just nine attempts in other two other exhibition appearances). The 2015 third-round pick will try to catch on with the practice squad or pursue a backup role elsewhere.
