The Denver Broncos signed two new defensive linemen this morning - Cody Larsen and Will Pericak - both former UDFAs signed last year by the Baltimore Ravens.

Pericak (pronounced Pre-chek) is a former Colorado Buffalo who competed in Broncos rookie mini camp as a tryout in May. The 6'3", 300-pound lineman spent time last season on the practice squads of the Chargers and Jaguars after initially being signed as an undrafted free agent with the Ravens.

In addition to being a local favorite, Pericak has also shown how a high-level athlete can successfully live with Type 1 diabetes, a condition he was diagnosed with at 15.

As a highly-touted linebacker out of Boulder High School, Pericak started a school-record 49 games at Colorado and finished his career with 207 tackles (125 solo), 7.5 sacks, 19 tackles for a loss, five forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.

He also had three career blocked kicks, the most by any CU player in two decades. He will don the No. 69 jersey.

Larsen is a 6'4", 300-pound DT from Southern Utah who spent 2013 on the Ravens' practice squad.

In 44 career games at Southern Utah, Larsen compiled 130 tackles (72 solo), 18.5 sacks, 30.5 tackles for a loss, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and one interception.

Larsen will wear No. 60 for the Broncos.
