D. B. Quinton Newsome, No. 36

Broncos Wire’s 90-man offseason roster series continues today with a look at the rookie linebacker Quinton NewsomeNo. 36.

In the offseason, teammates can share jersey numbers if they play on opposite sides of the court. This summer, Newsome will share No. 36 with running back Tyler Badie.

Before the Broncos:Newsome (6-foot-11, 190 pounds) played five years of college football at Nebraska, earning All-Big Ten honorable mention honors in 2023 and 2022. Over the past three seasons with the Cornhuskers, Newsome has combined for 138 tackles, 17 pass breakups, three sacks and one interception. A converted safety, Newsome can play cornerback or nickelback.

Broncos tenure: Denver signed Newsome as a college free agent in May. He expects to compete for a roster spot during training camp and the preseason this summer.

Chances of making it to the 53-man squad: Unlikely. The Broncos have more experienced players at cornerback and safety, so Newsome will likely compete for a spot on the practice squad as a rookie.
