Broncos Interested In Brandon Mebane, Reports John Clayton

ESPN's John Clayton finally joined Twitter and he's already providing plenty of NFL news during this free agency period. Clayton reports that the Denver Broncos will make a play for defensive tackle Brandon Mebane while Seattle and New Orleans are looking for his services. Mebane has spent his four-year career with the Seahawks after his selection in by them in 2007's third round.

Mebane benefited from the new collective bargaining agreement by gaining unrestricted free agency as a fourth-year player. But he may want to stay in Seattle.

Defensive tackle is a huge need for the Broncos, which makes this interest of no real surprise. He would instantly start on this revamped 4-3 defensive scheme and hopefully shut down the run. He does have 10 career sacks but he will be utilized more for his ability to stuff the run.
