Broncos Re-Sign Bruton

Posted Mar 11, 2013

The Broncos have agreed to terms with safety David Bruton.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- A day before the 2013 free agency period began, the Broncos made sure David Bruton didn't become an unrestricted free agent, agreeing to terms on a three-year contract with the safety on Monday.

Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway announced the move on Twitter.

Bruton enters his fifth NFL season in 2013, having played 61 games with four starts to open his career with the Broncos. A fourth-round pick by the club in 2009, Bruton has made 34 tackles with one interception, six pass breakups, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in his career.

Bruton has made a name for himself on special teams, where his 32 special-teams tackles over the last three seasons are the second-most on the team. He lead the Broncos with 376 special-teams plays in 2012 and was named a third alternate for the Pro Bowl squad as a special-teamer.

In 2012, Bruton played all 16 games and finished with five tackles and his first career interception, which sealed Denver's Week 12 win at Kansas City. On special teams, Bruton ranked third on the team with nine special-teams stops and deflected a Shane Lechler punt in Denver's Week 4 win against Oakland.

Bruton started for the University of Notre Dame during his final two seasons and led the team in tackles and interceptions during that period. He earned all-district honors as a senior at Miamisburg (Ohio) High School.

Bruton's signing follows the news on Friday of the team issuing tender letters to five of its restricted free agents. Bruton was set to become one of the team's 10 unrestricted free agents.

"Still a Bronco," Bruton tweeted. "Deals done! Blessed to continue a career in the NFL."
