Broncos Sign Veteran Middle Linebacker Paris Lenon

The Broncos bring in veteran linebacker Paris Lenons (#51) - Christian Petersen

The strength of the Denver defense is slowly becoming a weakness and the Broncos have brought in a veteran linebacker to right that course.

The Denver Broncos have just signed veteran middle linebacker Paris Lenon.

Lenon came into the NFL under former Carolina Panthers coach George Seifert in 2000, as an undrafted rookie. He was cut that June and joined the XFL (I said veteran), before reentering the NFL with the Green Bay Packers; he has played for the Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions, New England Patriots, St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals. Returning for two stints with the Packers and the Lions.

The vet has seen significant time most recently with the Cardinals in 2012, though he spent training camp this season with the Lions.

For his career he has 809 tackles, 12 sacks, ten forced fumbles and five interceptions. In 2012 he had 103 tackles (74 solo), two sacks, one interception and one forced fumble. He stands 6'2" and weighs 240 lbs. He is 35 and will be 36 in November.

Denver was getting short on linebackers, after Stewart Bradley's surgery, some rearranging and a possible suspension.
