The Broncos add some depth along the defensive line

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

According to ESPN's Jeff Legwold, the Denver Broncos have signed defensive lineman Vance Walker to a two-year deal that is reportedly worth 4 million dollars.

After the Denver Broncos missed out on defensive end Kendall Langford who signed with the Indianapolis Colts, they have decided to sign Walker instead

The 6'2 305lb defensive end has the prototypical size to be a 5-technique defensive end in the Broncos 3-4 defense. Walker will give the Broncos some much-needed depth at the defensive end position.

Walker is a six-year veteran who was a former seventh-round pick by the Atlanta Falcons back in 2009. He played this past season for the Kansas City Chiefs. He played in all 16 games this past season for the Chiefs and totaled 19 tackles and two sacks. In his career, he has totaled 138 total tackles, 10 sacks, 2 pass deflections, and 2 forced fumbles.
