The Broncos on Tuesday claimed linebacker Bruce Davis off waivers from the New England Patriots.

 Bruce Edward Davis, II was born September 2, 1985 in Los Angeles, California. He is the son of former NFL offensive tackle, Bruce Davis Sr.

Drafted in the third round (88th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers, Davis saw action in five games with the Steelers as a rookie. He was converted to outside linebacker in their 3-4 defense, but had some difficulty making the transition from Defensive End. Bruce was inactive for most of his rookie season, and the Steelers won Super Bowl XLIII. He was waived by Pittsburghon September 4, 2009.

Davis was signed to the New England Patriots practice squad on October 7, 2009. After spending the remainder of the season on the practice squad, he was re-signed to a future contract on January 13, 2010. The Patriots waived him May 27th.

In his collegiate career at UCLA, Bruce Davis tallied 29 quarterback sacks — second in school history — along with 137 tackles. His 42.5 stops for loss rank third in school history. He also had 17 passes defensed. In 50 games for the Bruins, Davis started 28 contests at right defensive end, causing six fumbles and recovering three. He also deflected nine passes in his Senior year.

In 2005 Davis moved to outside linebacker from defensive end during the spring and played both positions early in the season before moving back to end due to injuries on the team.

He earned first-team All-American honors from College Football News as a junior and was voted All-American second-team and All-Pac-10 first-team as a senior.
