The Spring League and the Generals are on a roll when it comes to players taking the next step in their career. Last week, the huge news broke that former Super Bowl champion linebacker Brandon Marshall would be joining the team. Then, earlier today we reported that offensive linemen Evin Ksiezarczyk had signed a contract with the Minnesota Vikings after attending a minicamp.
Now, we’re learning that quarterback Case Cookus has landed a role with the Denver Broncos.
QB Case Cookus broke #TSL2021 camp with the Generals, but he’ll be a Bronco instead. Congrats, @CaptainCookus10. #TSLinNFL https://t.co/D2VVVfNagl

Cookus impressed the Broncos enough during their rookie minicamp over the weekend for the team to sign him to become the No. 4 quarterback behind Drew Lock, Teddy Bridgewater and Brett Rypien.
Teams ordinarily keep four quarterbacks for offseason practices to help give fourth-stringers some reps.
He signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent last year but was waived at the start of training camp.
This is just another name among many that are proving that The Spring League works. The more that these guys get a chance to get film, the better shot they have to land a spot on a professional team.
The Generals are set to kickoff the action Monday night against the Sea Lions at 7pm ET on FS1. With so many changes to the roster in such short time, can the team stay undefeated? Only time will tell.
