The Broncos have agreed to terms with former Chiefs, Raiders, and Falcons defensive lineman Vance Walker (6-2, 305), it was announced. According to Mike Klis, Walker will sign a two-year deal worth $4M that can reach $5M with incentives.
A street free agent, Walker was released by KC last Friday; he'd been due a $2.7M salary in the second season of the three-year, $10.02M deal he signed a year ago.
Walker, who turns 28 next month, graded out at plus-6.8 and notched a pair of sacks in just 238 snaps over 16 games in 2014. According to Klis, Denver views Walker as a potential five-technique end.
Atlanta drafted him out of Georgia Tech in the seventh round of the 2009 Draft. In 2013, he signed a one-year deal with the Raiders, for whom he started 15 games and tallied a career high 40 total tackles.
