Broncos sign defensive end Brian Sanford

The former Cleveland Brown will provide depth along the defensive line.


It was first reported by ESPN's Jeff Legwold that the Denver Broncos have signed defensive end Brian Sanford. He is listed at 6'2 280lbs and will provide depth along the defensive line for the Broncos.

The Broncos have since announced the move.

Sanford entered the league back in 2010 as a college free agent signing by the Cleveland Browns. He spent his entire rookie season on the Cleveland Browns practice squad. He saw his first regular season action back in 2011 when he played six games for the Cleveland Browns.

Sanford was traded to Seattle for guard John Moffitt, but that deal was rescinded, reportedly due to Moffitt failing his physical. Moffitt was then traded to the Broncos. Sanford bounced around with the Raiders and Browns again before being released by the Browns earlier this spring.

Now Sanford will compete for a possible roster/practice squad spot for the Denver Broncos

During his career with the Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders, Sanford has played in 13 total games and compiled 7 total tackles.

Go Broncos!
