It was just announced that the Denver Broncos have claimed Toben Opurum and in turn waived rookie Anthony Norris.

Opurum is a fullback who played for the Saints in 2015 and participated on the practice squad for Kansas City and Houston in previous years.

At 6-foot-1, 250 pounds, the new Broncos player appeared in two New Orleans games in the 2015 season. Opurum spent his college career at linebacker, where he recorded 109 tackles, 6.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and Freshman All-Big 12 Conference honors while at the University of Kansas.

Opurum is an athletic option at fullback and will compete with rookie Andy Janovich during training camp.
