Broncos add 35-year-old linebacker Paris Lenon

Facing a shortage a linebacker due to the looming suspension of Von Miller and wrist surgery for Stewart Bradley, the Broncos have reportedly signed 35-year-old Paris Lenon to shore up the group.

In 11 seasons with the Packers, Lions, Rams, and Cardinals, Lenon has started 122 of the 175 games in which he's appeared, including 48 consecutive starts with Arizona over the past three years.

Although Lenon played 1,040 snaps and accumulated 103 total tackles, two sacks, an interception, a forced fumble, and three passes defensed, he graded out at a woeful minus-22.2 in two games at RILB and 14 at LILB, according to PFF.

Only Cincy's Rey Maualuga graded out worse among inside linebackers last season.

Bradley is expected to miss several weeks after wrist surgery, while Miller is facing a suspension as long as eight games long.
