Broncos sign Koppen and Hanie, place Warren on IR, waive Davis

As expected, the Broncos have signed center Dan Koppen and brought back quarterback Caleb Hanie.

To make room for them, the team placed DT Ty Warren on IR and waived guard/center C.J. Davis. Denver also cut lineman Wayne Tribue from the practice squad.

Taking the place of Tribue on the practice squad will be DE Jamie Blatnick, who was among the team's final cuts this year after collecting seven tackles in the preseason (five solo).

According to Mike Klis, Koppen was added for depth purposes, and suggested the center's motivation for signing with Denver was the presence of line coach Dave Magazu, who coached Koppen at BC.

Koppen will wear #67, which was his jersey number for all nine years he spent in New England.
