Broncos sign DT Shamar Stephen


Recommended Posts

He's probably better off as a backup. For a 7th round pick, he hasn't been too too bad!

Will Denver still address the DT position in free agency though?

Doubt they add more DT in free agency, perhaps in one the draft. They signed Mike Purcell to a sizable contract this last year and he's performed well before getting hurt.

He's a reasonable rotational depth guy at this stage, nothing more.   Purcell / Shelby Harris / Dre'mont Jones are are our starting DL, with 2nd year 3rd-round pick Agim being looked at as next up.  I imagine Stephen fits 5th on depth chart, and insurance in case someone gets hurt, or Agim doesn't make the leap.    If it's for vet-min wages, or close, seems like an OK fit.   Obviously Paton knows him well from his MIN days, obvious connection.   If it's min-wage, then more about depth than anything else.
