According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Denver Broncos are expected to visit with defensive lineman Kendall Langford.

Langford has played the past four seasons for the St. Louis Rams. The 29-year old veteran is also scheduled to visit the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints.

Langford is listed at 6'6, 313lbs which is the ideal size to be a 5-technique defensive end in a 3-4 defense. The Broncos are transitioning to a 3-4 defense and only have Derek Wolfe and Malik Jackson at defensive end. Langford would provide competition and some much-needed depth at defensive end.

In seven NFL seasons, Langford has totaled 242 tackles, 15.5 sacks, and 4 forced fumbles. His best overall season came in 2013 when he totaled 49 tackles, 5 sacks, and 4 pass deflections. This past season he totaled 25 tackles and 1 sack for the St. Louis Rams defense.

There's nothing special about Langford, but he will give the Broncos depth along the defensive line, and a solid run defender who can help make up for the potential loss of defensive tackle Terrance Knighton
