Broncos agree to terms with T Donald Stephenson on three-year contract

Posted Mar 9, 2016

The Broncos have agreed to terms with OT Donald Stephenson, a versatile four-year veteran, on a three-year contract.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos' first move in free agency was to bolster their offensive line, agreeing to terms with offensive tackle Donald Stephenson on a three-year contract.

Stephenson brings four years of NFL experience, including starts in 21 of his 60 career games. The former third-round pick by the Chiefs (74th overall) also has started in each of Kansas City's three postseason games during his time with the Chiefs.

"He’s matured, he understands what it takes to fulfill his role with the offense," said Chiefs general manager John Dorsey at the team's end-of-season press conference. "It allows him to mature and nurture and develop. I think when he stepped in at various roles, either at guard or at tackle, he played very well. I mean, he did what he was expected to do, and that’s what we talk about, the next man up. When it was time for him to step up when he was needed, he stepped up and fulfilled his job."

Stephenson was a versatile piece of Kansas City's offensive line, able to play either tackle position and he even played snaps at left guard during the Chiefs' Week 13 game against Oakland.
