After Teddy Bridgewater’s horrific concussion, the Denver Broncos went out and brought in another quarterback to help with Depth.
The Denver Broncos had to address concerns after Teddy Bridgewater went down with a terrifying injury in Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. So that is exactly what the Broncos did. They found another quarterback to help them.
Denver has added Anthony Gordon to its training roster, according to a report by Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network.

It’s not exactly clear how long Gordon will stay with the Broncos or how many options he will have to fight for game time, but this is one of the best punches he has had in a while.
This is Gordon’s second season trying to find a place in the NFL. Before joining the Broncos, Gordon worked on making the Kansas City Chiefs as he had previously signed a reserve / future contract with KC. However, it didn’t work out between Gordon and the Chiefs.
Prior to that, Gordon was a member of the Seattle Seahawks Practice Team in 2020, which he joined after not being drafted.
After starting college at the City College of San Francisco, Gordon made his way to the Washington State Cougars, where he played for Mike Leach for a few seasons and was successful in the Air Raid.
During his final season in 2019, Gordon threw an impressive 5,579 yards and 48 touchdowns against 16 interceptions. Like all Air Raid quarterbacks, Gordon threw the ball a lot, but he did 71.6 percent of his passes.
Again, Gordon is unlikely to make a significant breakthrough and massively impress the league here, but it’s an opportunity for the 24-year-old quarterback to prove he’s on a team somewhere.
