The Denver Broncos have their signed third-round pick, cornerback Brendan Langley, and their fifth-round pick, Jake Butt, to four-year contracts.

The deals, according to the rookie pay scale, will be worth around $3.1M, with a signing bonus of around $700k for Langley and $2.7M, with a $300k signing bonus for Butt.

Langley figures to get playing time right away on special teams as he is said to need time to develop at the cornerback position. The Broncos hope his physical style of play will keep the secondary a tough unit down the road.

Butt, who is recovering from a torn ACL, will likely face a red shirt year his rookie season. Once healthy, he could work his way into a solid 7-year starter for the Broncos. He was easily touted as one of the biggest steals of the draft falling all the way into the fifth-round for the Broncos.

This signing leaves just DeMarcus Walker and Carlos Henderson unsigned from the Broncos 2017 NFL Draft class.
