Chase Vaughn’s journey to the NFL took him through two small Colorado colleges and four professional football leagues before he called in sick from his hospital job to covertly try out for the Denver Broncos.
The Denver Broncos on Tuesday announced they have waived wide receiver Nathan Palmer from their active roster and signed tight end Dominique Jones to the practice squad.
Chase Vaughn is one of 90 players on the Broncos roster, but the story of how he got there is one in a million.
Chase Vaughn called in sick last week, telling his bosses at National Jewish Health where he answered phone calls from people wanting to stop smoking or lose weight that he had the stomach flu.
