The Denver Broncos on Tuesday signed linebacker Jammie Kirlew, whom they selected in the seventh round (232nd overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft from Indiana University. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Kirlew (6-foot-3, 264 pounds) earned All-Big Ten Conference honors during each of his final two seasons at Indiana, where he tied for third on the school's all-time sacks list (23) and tied for second on its all-time tackles for loss list (52.5). As a senior, he tied for sixth in the nation with five forced fumbles in addition to posting three fumble recoveries, 62 tackles and 6.5 sacks as a second-team all-conference choice.
