Broncos agree to 2-year deal with Wes Welker
That means Chris Harris, an undrafted player out of Kansas who’s coming off a solid season, will move back inside.
Not that he’s too bothered by the move.
Bradley played last season for Arizona, where he didn’t fit in with the team’s 3-4 scheme. His best season came in Philadelphia in 2008, when he had 108 tackles. He will compete with Nate Irving and Steven Johnson for Denver’s starting middle linebacker spot.
“Obviously, the standards on both sides of the ball are high here,” Bradley said. “I think it’s a great combination when you can have a stout, strong defense on a team with a prolific offense.”
One that’s only bolstered by the presence of Welker.
“The Welker deal is a big deal. He’s a great player and just another weapon on an already scary offense,” Bradley said. “He’s definitely a dangerous player because you think he’s covered and you throw the ball to him, he’s going to catch it. He’s so versatile in the slot. He’s a durable guy. He has been as productive of a guy as there is in the NFL in the past five or six years.
“I think he’ll be a great addition to the team.”
Knighton couldn’t agree more.
“Wes Welker, (Eric) Decker, Peyton Manning, (Demaryius) Thomas _ that will be hard to deal with for any defense in the league,” Knighton said. “There are a few teams in the league that you could say actually have a chance of playing in the Super Bowl and this is definitely one of those places.”
Knighton was a third-round pick of Jacksonville in 2009, when Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio was there. His signing, along with Tuesday’s resigning of Kevin Vickerson, gives the Broncos 600-plus pounds of defensive linemen to plug holes in the middle.
Knighton, whose nickname is “Pot Roast,” can definitely help in that area.
Just to be clear, though, he signed at the same time as Welker.
