The Denver Broncos have signed veteran inside linebacker Paris Lenon.
In a move to replace injured Stewart Bradley on the roster, the Broncos signed a veteran who has played in a lot of games but is clearly on the downside of his career.
Like Keith Brooking last year, not much will be expected of Lenon, but you never know. Perhaps he could exceed expectations.
Lenon was cut from the Lions this offseason after spending the last few with the Arizona Cardinals, and has 809 career tackles, 12 sacks, 10 forced fumbles, and five interceptions. He started his NFL career with the Carolina Panthers before spending some time in the XFL and then re-joining the NFL with the Green Bay Packers.
The 6’2″ 240 pound Lenon will hopefully give the Broncos some veteran leadership in a young LB group, and will turn 36 this November.
