Bannan Signs 5 Year Deal w/ Broncos

March 5, 2010

Mike Klis of the Denver Post is reporting that former Baltimore Ravens Nose Tackle Justin Bannan signed a 5 year contract with the Denver Broncos late this afternoon. This came after making a visit to Dove Valley earlier in the day. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

While not official yet, the two sides agreed in principle over the terms of the contract. He is expected to be the Broncos new starting Nose Tackle in their 3-4 defense. We are not sure yet where this leaves Ronald Fields and his role on the team.

Even though he is 30, Bannan has never started before. That said, he played under some of the best Defensive Ends and Nose Tackles in the league in Baltimore. He has been effected by the play of Haloti Ngata, Trevor Pryce and Ray Lewis among others.

Bannan may be recognized by Colorado sports fans. He played Nose Tackle for the Colorado Buffs when he was in college.

“He’s excited about it,” said Tom Mills, Bannan’s Boulder-based agent. “He played college here and really enjoyed his visit with the team today. He just felt like this was the right fit.” And Broncos fans certainly hope that he is the right fit to improve Denvers’ defense.

There will definitely be some more movement today and tomorrow, as the Broncos continue to sign new free agents. To stay on top of it all follow us at twitter.com/broncomadness, and also keep an eye on our free agent tracker. Just click the banner below:
