Ex-PanthPackHawkBengal SS Marquand Manuel adds Bronc To His Title

From the Denver Post.


After bolstering their linebacker corps during the week, the Broncos have moved on to the safety position by signing Marquand Manuel to a three-year contract Saturday.

Manual will receive $1.5 million a year in his deal, $2 million if he starts. And he will compete with John Lynch and Hamza Abdullah for one of the two safety positions. The Broncos will be the fifth team for Manuel, who will be entering his seventh season. He has played strong and free safety while making stops in Cincinnati, Seattle, Green Bay and Carolina. He had drawn interest from other teams as a free agent, but picked Denver.

"He was looking for an opportunity to become a starter and felt the best place would be Denver," said Ron Slavin, Manuel's agent.

Last week, the Broncos secured free-agent deals with middle linebacker Niko Koutouvides and strongside linebacker Boss Bailey.

The hope here is that not a lot of dough got spent on this one, which was probably what it would have taken to lure McCree from BUF.  Crocker aparently will get nabbed by the Steelers, so that left Manuel if the Broncos wnated to get something done now.  

Obviously they did.

He will compete for a starting spot in training camp, so we should at least have some of our depth issues at the position resolved now.  One SAF in the draft and we should be covered!
