The Denver Broncos on Friday signed unrestricted free-agent tackle Brandon Gorin, it was announced.

Gorin (6-foot-6, 308 pounds) is an ninth-year player who joins the Broncos after stints with St. Louis (2007-08), Arizona (2006), New England (2002-06) and San Diego (2001). He entered the NFL with the Chargers in 2001 as a seventh-round selection (201st overall) from Purdue University.

The offensive lineman has appeared in 42 games (26 starts) and seven postseason contests (5 starts) in his career. In 2008, Gorin injured his shoulder during St. Louis' preseason opener against Tennessee and was placed on injured reserve on Aug. 19.

In 2007, he saw action in 11 games and started eight of the Rams' last nine games at right tackle after competing in Arizona's training camp. He was whistled for one penalty for five yards.

Gorin joined Arizona on Aug. 21, 2006, from New England in exchange for a sixth-round selection in the 2007 NFL Draft (180th overall, LB Justin Rogers). He played in two games that year.

In 2005, Gorin played in 11 games, including starting the final eight contests. He also appeared in both of New England's postseason contests.

Gorin helped running back Corey Dillon set the Patriots' single-season rushing record with 1,635 yards as he played in a career-high 14 games (10 starts) and all three of New England's postseason outings, including its Super Bowl XXXIX win over Philadelphia.

After being declared inactive for all of San Diego's games as a rookie in 2001, Gorin split the 2002 campaign between St. Louis' and New England's practice squads.

At Purdue University, Gorin started 39 games as a three-year starter for the Boilermakers. He moved to offensive line after beginning his college career as a defensive lineman.

Gorin, 30, earned first-team all-state recognition as a defensive tackle at Southside High School in Muncie, Ind. Brandon Michael Gorin was born Aug. 17, 1978, in Muncie, Ind.
