The Broncos sign Defensive Tackle Marvin Austin

Al Bello

Austin was a favorite of many Bronco fans during the 2011 draft

The Denver Broncos tweeted out this morning that they have signed Defensive Tackle Marvin Austin. He was drafted by the New York Giants in the second round(52nd overall) the 2011 draft. Austin is now entering his forth year in the league and will look to compete for a roster spot in Training camp

Austin has been slowed by injuries during his short career. He missed his entire rookie year with a torn pectoral muscle. Austin has only played in 11 career NFL games in four years. During his career Austin has totaled 10 tackles.

Austin has bounced around the league some after being cut by the New York Giants after the preseason last season. He would then latch on with the Dallas Cowboys who would part ways with him after he hurt his back in practice after appearing in one game. Austin also spent some time with the Miami Dolphins in 2013.

Austin would provide depth at defensive tackle this offseason, and if he stays healthy could push for a roster spot behind Terrence "Pot Roast" Knighton, Sylvester Williams, and Kevin Vickerson. Marvin Austin entered the league with some high expectations but has of yet lived up to them. Lets see if the Broncos can turn his career around like they did with Knighton and Brodrick Bunkley.
