Jim Leonhard, Denver Broncos Reach Contract Agreement

With Quinton Carter expected to miss a couple of weeks due to arthroscopic knee surgery, the Denver Broncos signed safety Jim Leonhard on Saturday afternoon to fill that void in the secondary, reports CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora:

John Elway confirmed the report several minutes later on Twitter, as did Leonhard.

Leonhard is a seven-year veteran out of Wisconsin, playing the last three years with the New York Jets. He spent a year with the Baltimore Ravens and the first three of his career with the Buffalo Bills, who, as La Canfora mentions, were also in the hunt for the safety's services.

Leonhard has 326 total tackles and six interceptions in 94 careers games
