The Denver Broncos signed well-traveled tight end Orson Charles on Tuesday and placed fullback Andy Janovich on injured reserve after he dislocated his right elbow during Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
Charles, 28, has five years of experience with four different teams. He played for the Cincinnati Bengals to start his career in 2012 and 2013, while also playing for the Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns. He also spent 2014 with the New Orleans Saints but did not appear in a game.
Over 49 career games (eight starts), Charles has 14 receptions for 185 yards. He was also drafted by the XFL's DC Defenders in October.
Janovich, a sixth-round draft pick by the Broncos in 2016 out of Nebraska, had five receptions for 42 yards this season and ran the ball one time for a 1-yard touchdown. In 50 career games (19 starts), he has 22 grabs for 233 yards with one TD, and 13 rushing attempts for 51 yards and three TDs.
