Report: Broncos sign veteran cornerback Tramaine Brock

Broncos add a veteran cornerback to their secondary.

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

According to 9NEWS Denver’s Mike Klis, the Denver Broncos have signed veteran Tramaine Brock to a one-year, four million dollar deal.

With Aqib Talib traded to the Los Angeles Rams and former first-round pick Bradley Roby moving to the number two cornerback spot, the Broncos needed a number three cornerback. Well, they got their guy by signing veteran Tramaine Brock to a one-year, four million dollar deal that will be finalized once free agency officially opens later this afternoon.

Brock is entering his ninth year in the NFL and will turn 30 years old in August. He served as veteran depth on the Minnesota Vikings defense last season. During his eight years in the NFL, Brock has totaled 189 tackles, 44 pass deflections, 11 interceptions, and 1 defensive touchdown.

Brock has been a solid starting cornerback at times during his career, but as the chart above shows, he has been a bit inconsistent at times.

This isn’t a sexy or splashy addition to the Broncos secondary, but it does add some veteran experience who can hold down the position until either 2017 third round pick Brendan Langley or UDFA Marcus Rios steps up and surpasses the veteran. It is also just a one-year deal so it’s not a terrible deal for the Broncos.
