Broncos sign free agent defensive lineman Green

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The Denver Broncos continued beefing up their defensive line with the signing of unrestricted free agent Jarvis Green, who spent his first eight NFL seasons in New England.

Green, who packs 285 pounds on his 6-foot-3 frame, is well versed in the 3-4 alignment that coach Josh McDaniels implemented in Denver last year after being hired away from Bill Belichick’s Patriots staff.

Last season, Green had 47 tackles in 13 games, including 12 starts.

He has tallied 325 tackles and 28 sacks in 121 games since the Patriots drafted him in the fourth round out of LSU in 2002. He also has 36 tackles and five sacks in 15 playoff games.
