Bannan, Jones Join Club

Posted Mar 5, 2010

The Broncos on Friday agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent defensive lineman Justin Bannan and cornerback Nathan Jones. Head Coach Josh McDaniels said, "We are excited with these two additions."


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos added two more free agents Friday evening, agreeing to terms with defensive lineman Justin Bannan and cornerback Nathan Jones.

“We are excited with these two additions and expect Justin Bannan and Nathan Jones to make positive contributions to the Broncos both on the field and in the locker room,” Head Coach Josh McDaniels said. “Justin will fit into our scheme very well, and having played his college ball at Colorado, he’s thrilled to return to this state as a Bronco. Nathan’s versatility in the secondary will make us better. He is a quality player who is eager to compete and make an impact on this team.”

Bannan played for Baltimore during the last four years after spending his first four NFL seasons with Buffalo. In 113 career regular-season games with 27 starts, Bannan has posted 230 tackles, 5.5 sacks, one interception, three pass breakups, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He also has registered 12 tackles in five postseason games with two starts.

As McDaniels mentioned, Bannan was a four-year starter at the University of Colorado.

"Besides being a quality football player who is versatile, tough and smart, Justin Bannan is a quality person," General Manager Brian Xanders said. "He is the type of player we are looking for as we build our football team."

Jones appeared in every game during the last two seasons with Miami after spending his first four NFL seasons with Dallas. In 83 career regular-season games with seven starts, Jones has totaled 104 tackles, six sacks, three interceptions, 13 pass breakups, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He owns 53 career tackles on special teams and has returned 10 kickoffs for 178 yards.

The cornerback also has appeared in three playoff games for his career, registering two defensive tackles, four special-teams tackles and two kickoff returns for 45 yards.

"Nathan Jones has experience playing outside cornerback, nickel cornerback and safety," Xanders said. "He makes plays on defense and has been a core contributor on special teams."
