Vickerson has spent three of his seven NFL seasons with the Broncos. He came to the Broncos as a free agent on September 7, 2010 after being cut by the Seattle Seahawks. He started twelve of the Broncos last thirteen games -- an injury kept him from accompanying the team to London to play San Francisco. He started four of Denver's first five games in 2011 before an ankle injury landed him on the Injured Reserve list. Returning to the active roster in 2012, Vickerson set career highs in both appearances and starts. He helped the 2012 Broncos defense limit opponents to an average of 91.1 rushing yards per game -- which ranked Denver third in the league in rushing defense.
