Welcome to the Denver Broncos DL Louis Leonard

On Wednesday, the Denver Broncos filled the spot on the active roster left by linebacker Lee Robinson by signing defensive lineman Louis Leonard, formerly of the New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers.

Leonard was originally an undrafted free agent signed by the San Diego Chargers, and he eventually wound up with the Cleveland Browns where he made four starts in place of Shaun Rogers at defensive end. The Browns traded him to the Carolina Panthers for a sixth round draft choice in the 2009 NFL Draft, and he was playing well for the Panthers prior to breaking his ankle in the second week of the season, placing him on season-ending injured reserve.

He has not been the same player since then, but the 6'4" 330 pound Leonard has plenty of upside for the Broncos, who could certainly use any help they can get on the defensive line. He's been slowed by injuries since being traded to Carolina, and had since found a home with the New England Patriots.

The Patriots cut him a few weeks ago, and now Leonard has a chance for a new start with the Denver Broncos. If he can stay healthy, he would provide the Broncos with a versatile player who is obviously big enough to play nose tackle but has also played defensive end.

He will wear number 94 with the Broncos.
