The Denver Broncos have signed offensive lineman Tony Hills, formerly of the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post. The Broncos and Hills have reportedly agreed to a two-year deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Herb Taylor was waived to make this move possible.
Hills, a former Texas Longhorn, was the Steelers' fourth-round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, but he didn't see any action in the league until last season. He will serve in the backup role that Taylor had occupied before his release. Taylor was listed as the second-string right tackle, behind rookie Orlando Franklin.
Even after the Saturday deadline to reach the 53-man roster, head coach John Fox continues to add pieces, hoping to create the right mix of players to face the Raiders on Monday.
