The Denver Broncos wasted little time in filling in the gap that Chris Kuper's injury left on the offensive line. The team announced on Monday afternoon that former Broncos offensive tackle Ryan Harris signed with the team.

Harris hit free agency this year due to the new collective bargaining agreement. There was some thought that he was going to re-sign with the Broncos in August, but he decided to ply his trade with the Philadelphia Eagles, the Dream Team at the time. Instead, he suffered a back injury, had surgery, was placed on injured reserve and was released after reaching a settlement with the team.
Now Harris will get the playoff chance with the Broncos that he missed out on in his previous four years with the team.
