According to a report, the Denver Broncos have re-signed safety and special teamer Shiloh Keo, who was a key late-season addition in 2015…
The Denver Broncos have re-signed safety Shiloh Keo, according to OTF Athlete on Twitter. OTF Athlete is working with Keo in his training this offseason, and they tweeted this out on Friday…
The signing has not been confirmed by Denver area reporters or the team at the time of this posting, but I don’t think this is another elaborate ploy by Keo to utilize Twitter to get a job again…
In case you had forgotten, last year was when Keo threw a tweet at Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and told him he should have called him when the Broncos had an opening at safety. It just so happens that an additional spot opened after the Broncos had brought on Josh Bush, who was with the team earlier that season.

Keo was signed, and immediately became a factor on defense and special teams. The play that really stands out to me was in the AFC Championship when Keo darted like a missile at the Patriots’ final onside kick attempt. The Broncos had the game in hand, but they needed the onside recovery to cement a trip to the Super Bowl.
Keo showed incredible courage to run at the ball and throw his body on top of it, not simply ‘hoping’ the ball would come to him but forcing it to do so.
That play, coupled with some impressive hits in the secondary and his involvement in breaking up the two-point conversion in the AFC Championship game made me a fan. This guy is as scrappy as they come, and can play a role on both defense and special teams. With the Broncos’ saftey depth a question, this is a good move to make before OTAs start on Monday to get him in the (new) locker room.
