ESPN’s Bill Williamson reports the Broncos added S Josh Barrett, QB Darrell Hackney, Offensive lineman Mitch Erikson and Defensive lineman Steven Harris to their practice squad.

In other league news RMN reports the New England Patriots released former Broncos Safety John Lynch today.

I am certainly glad to see Darrell Hackney and Josh Barrett on the practice squad, Hackney has played well and Barrett looks to have potential. John Lynch being released by the Patriots seems to reinforce Horvil Tiki’s assessment that Shanahan was right in limiting Lynch’s playing time due to his level of play, and gives less credence to the thoughts that Lynch left the Broncos just because he didn’t think they were contenders.
