      ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The Broncos have acquired fullback Chris Gronkowski in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for cornerback Cassius Vaughn, the team announced on Wednesday.

      “We have a lot of depth in our secondary and this was an opportunity for us to add a quality fullback to our roster,” Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway announced via Twitter.

      Gronkowski has played 21 games during his career with Dallas (2010) and Indianapolis (2011). He’s gained 17 yards on five carries and 35 yards on seven receptions, including a receiving touchdown.

      Chris is one of three Gronkowski brothers currently on NFL rosters along with Rob (New England) and Dan (Cleveland), who spent the 2010 season with the Broncos. He played college football at Maryland (2005-06), overlapping with Dan, before transferring to Arizona, where he played with Rob (2007-09).

      They are they looking to become the fifth set of brothers to play for the Broncos in the regular season, joining Champ and Boss Bailey, Albert and Paul Carmichael, Eldon and William Danenhauer and Dave and Doug Widell.

      Gronkowski played both fullback and linebacker during college – in addition to spending a year on the baseball team at Arizona.

      Vaughn, who joined the team as a college free agent in 2010, played 22 games and registered 22 tackles with one interception that he returned for a touchdown.

            No!!! I actually liked Vaughn. He had value at KR and Nickel. So I'm guessing we're cutting Larsen?

              Nice. We needed a fullback and another teammate of Manning's is good.

                      Elway has a problem understanding this "trade value" thing, doesn't he?
                      Where is this season going?

                        Even if he wasn't traded, I just don't see how Cassius was going to make the roster.

                        Bailey, Porter, Florence, Harris, Bolden, Sydquan, Cassius.

                        Cassius was on the bubble for sure, glad we got something for him

                          Another Gronkowski to be cast off later?
