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.
