DENVER -- Tackle Doug Nienhuis has been signed to the Denver Broncos practice squad, the team announced Tuesday.

Nienhuis, a seventh-round pick in last year's draft, played seven regular-season games with the New York Jets last season, mainly on special teams. He was waived by the Jets Sept. 2 and signed to the Houston Texans' practice squad last month. The Texans waived him Oct. 9.
