The Broncos have decided to bring back 27-year-old safety Shamarko Thomas.
In his first preseason game with Indianapolis, the safety was ejected for an illegal hit.
This ejection was the first under the NFL's new helmet rule, and yes, it was nasty.
The safety helps fill out some depth at a position that is unproven. Though Denver has an up-and-coming safety in Justin Simmons and the veteran Darian Stewart, the backups are young and inexperienced, especially with Su'a Cravens' lingering injuries.
Thomas has never been a true star during his career, but his knowledge and presence should help the whole unit, if only to teach them how not to tackle.
Denver also waived wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie in order to make room for Thomas.
