Roughly and hour and a half after the deadline for making final cuts passed, the Denver Broncos announced on Saturday the team has signed free agent quarterback Austin Davis to the 53rd and final roster spot.

General manager John Elway met with the press at 3 p.m MDT, one hour after rosters were due and said the team had it’s No. 3 quarterback, but would not disclose a name. A release by the team shortly thereafter officially announced the signing.

Davis was necessary because Denver released veteran Mark Sanchez as part of the final roster cuts. Sanchez officially lost the open competition with Trevor Siemian for the starting job after Week 3 of the preseason. The Dallas Cowboys announced they had signed Sanchez, who will back up Dak Prescott with Tony Romo sidelined with injury, even before the Broncos announced he had been released.

In the world of NFL free agency, especially at quarterback, it’s no surprise that Sanchez and Davis’ paths criss-crossed.

Davis has played in 13 games over his four years in the league, 10 in 2014 with St. Louis and three in 2015 with Cleveland. The Browns cut Davis on Monday.

The Southern Miss grad has a career NFL completion percentage of 62.4 with 13 touchdowns to go with 12 interceptions.

The Broncos and Browns crossed paths earlier in the day when former Broncos punter Britton Colquitt, who was released earlier this week, reportedly agreed to a one-year deal.
