Former Rutgers Linebacker Quentin Gause Signs with Denver Broncos

NCAA Football: Rutgers at Indiana Matt Kryger-USA TODAY Sports

Quentin Gause, who was waived by the Philadelphia Eagles in the final round of cuts in early September, and followed that with a short stint with the New England Patriots, was just signed by the Denver Broncos to their practice squad.

This was reported yesterday by The Denver Post in an article that also had former Vanderbilt tight end Steve Scheu joining the Bronco’s practice squad with Gause.

Gause, a 6-foot, 243-pound linebacker for the Scarlet Knights for four years from 2012-2015, had a Rutgers record of 223 tackles, three sacks and 27.5 tackles for loss.

Gause was in the hunt for a roster position with the Eagles, and played in the preseason in multiple games.

After being waived by the Eagles, Quentin was signed by and then released by the Pats earlier this month. He also had a tryout with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but that didn’t result in being signed to the Bucs.

The Broncos announced the signing on Twitter:

Rutgers Football was also very glad to announce the signing of the newest member of the Denver Broncos

From the Eagles, to the Patriots, an attempt with the Buccaneers, and now with the Broncos. This should be good insight for the casual fan the efforts many players take in order to be signed to an NFL squad. It is a difficult and challenging process, and it takes resilience and dedication to succeed.

Gause has been assigned to the Broncos practice squad. As more information becomes available, it will be shared.
