Derrick Harvey, Denver Broncos Agree To Contract, According To Report

The Denver Broncos have signed defensive end Derrick Harvey, according to a tweet from the NFL Network's Michael Lombardi and confirmed by Mike Klis of the Denver Post. Harvey was with the Jacksonville Jaguars since they took him with the eighth overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. In fact, the Jags traded four draft picks to the Baltimore Ravens to move up from No. 26 to No. 8 to grab the former Florida Gator.

However, Harvey has failed to live up to expectations. He has just eight sacks in three seasons and received less playing time in 2010. But John Fox must see this as a low-risk investment.

Harvey will play as backup to both Elvis Dumervil and Robert Ayers on the defensive line. As Klis mentions, this ends any possibility of Mario Haggan putting a hand down on the field occasionally. This isn't the end of the Broncos bringing in more players, though.
