Well, for a couple of hours, it was a little scary thinking that Louis Leonard was the only defensive tackle on the Denver Broncos' roster. With the recent release of veterans Justin Bannan and Jamal Williams, the Broncos' rotation at defensive tackle was thin to put it lightly, but the team made a move to help out the depth a little bit.

Kevin Vikerson signed a multi-year extension, a move that was first reported by Pro Football Talk and then confirmed by the Denver Broncos' official Twitter page. The deal is reportedly a two year extension. Vickerson is entering his seventh year in the league out of Michigan State, and had a very solid season for the Broncos last year as a defensive end in their 3-4 alignment. 

In 15 games, Vickerson had 42 tackles, two sacks, an interception, and a fumble forced. Vickerson also knocked down three passes for the Broncos.

The 6'5" 330 pound defensive linemen showed his versatility over the course of last year, and proved that he can be a factor in John Fox's new defensive scheme.
