New, comments

The Denver Broncos on Friday signed long snapper David Binn to their active roster and waived fullback Austin Sylvester, it was announced. Binn will handle the long-snapping duties for Lonie Paxton who will miss Saturday's game due to personal reasons.

Binn (6-foot-3, 288 pounds) is an 18th-year player who spent the first 17 seasons of his career with the San Diego Chargers, setting a team record with 256 regular-season games played, including a franchise-best 179 consecutive contests from 1998-2010. He also appeared in 12 postseason games with the Chargers, including Super Bowl XXIX during his 1994 rookie season.

Signed by San Diego as a college free agent from the University of California-Berkley in 1994, Bin was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1996. He will wear No. 54 for the Broncos.
