The Broncos auditioned former Patriots running back Thomas Clayton and former Ravens running back Jalen Parmele on Monday, this according to a league source.
Clayton originally was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the sixth round of the 2007 draft out of Kansas State. After spending all of 2007 on the San Francisco practice squad, Clayton spent the first 14 weeks of 2008 as part of that unit until being signed to the active roster for the final two games of the season.
Parmele is a former Miami Dolphins and Ravens reserve regarded highly for his special-teams work. He was cut during the Ravens’ final major roster cutdown as they retained seventh-round rookie running back Anthony Allen instead of him.
