  Broncos | Brett Rypien back on practice squad    Tue Dec 3, 09:51 PM

Free-agent QB Brett Rypien (Broncos) was signed to the practice squad of the Denver Broncos Tuesday, Dec. 3.

Footballguys view: Rypien is a pro-style quarterback who was serving as the backup to Brandon Allen for a few weeks. With Drew Lock starting, the team made Allen the backup and have put Rypien back on the practice. He was undrafted out of Boise State this year and is a prospect we will continue to monitor but only in deep dynasty formats.

  Broncos | Brett Rypien to be added to PS    Mon Dec 2, 06:29 PM

Free-agent QB Brett Rypien will be signed to the Denver Broncos practice squad.

Footballguys view: Rypien was the backup to Brandon Allen, but with Drew Lock healthy the team wanted to make room for their 2019 second-round pick and potential franchise quarterback. They cut Rypien with the idea of adding him to the practice squad and here he is. Rypien is a good pro-style quarterback we will monitor in super deep dynasty formats.

  Broncos | Drew Lock activated off IR    Sat Nov 30, 02:24 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (thumb) on Saturday, Nov. 30, was activated off the Reserve/Injured list. In a corresponding move, QB Brett Rypien was waived.

Footballguys view: Lock is likely to start on Sunday against the Chargers. The team hasn't made that announcement yet, but Lock took 75 percent of the starter's reps in practice this week. The rookie second-round pick has a rocket arm and is quite athletic. We'll see if he can flash the signs that he's the Broncos quarterback of the future over the next five games.

  Broncos | Brett Rypien to be QB2 this Sunday    Wed Oct 30, 01:10 AM

Denver Broncos QB Brett Rypien will be elevated from the practice squad to the active roster and serve as backup to QB Brandon Allen in Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns, according to the Denver Post's Kyle Newman.

Footballguys view: It's going to be the undrafted rookie and not the team's second-round rookie (Drew Lock). That's not as big of a deal as some want to make it out to be because Lock is still on Injured Reserve. Rypien has been running the scout team and throwing passes in practice. When Lock is activated, the team could release Rypien and put him back on the practice squad.

  Broncos | Denver adds to practice squad    Sun Sep 1, 06:45 PM

The Denver Broncos added CB Alijah Holder, QB Brett Rypien, DT Deyon Sizer, DL Ahmad Gooden, OT Quinn Bailey, WR Fred Brown and OT Tyler Jones to their practice squad Sunday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Rypien is a player we'll monitor in crazy deep dynasty formats. He's confident and accurate as a passer on short-to-intermediate routes. We'll see if he can develop on the practice squad for Denver.

  Broncos | Brett Rypien showing potential    Sun Jul 21, 09:10 PM

Denver Broncos QB Brett Rypien impressed head coach Vic Fangio with his performance against the first-team defense Sunday, July 21. 'Brett, I think, maybe, he's got a future,' Fangio said.

Footballguys view: Rypien got a big bonus for an undrafted rookie and should be able to beat out Kevin Hogan to be the third quarterback, assuming second-round pick Drew Lock is ready to back up Joe Flacco.
