Green in Orange and Blue

Posted Mar 9, 2010

Defensive lineman Jarvis Green joined the Broncos on Tuesday. In his eight years in New England, Green was a part of six division championships, three conference titles and two Super Bowl championships.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos on Tuesday added another piece to their defensive line.

Jarvis Green now joins the club, a defensive lineman who will be entering his ninth season in the league in 2010.

"Jarvis has a great deal of experience playing in a 3-4 system and will bring veteran leadership to our team," General Manager Brian Xanders said. "We're excited to add him to our roster."

Green was drafted by the New England Patriots in the fourth round of the 2002 draft from Louisiana State University, and in his eight seasons in New England, he was a part of six division championships, three conference titles and two Super Bowl championships.

He started 12 of the 13 games he played in 2009, and has played at least 13 games in all nine professional seasons. In his career, Green has amassed 325 tackles, 28 sacks, nine forced fumbles and five passes defensed.

In 2007, Green tied for second on the Patriots with 6.5 sacks while starting a career-high 10 games as part of a Patriots defense that allowed just 288.3 yards per game, the lowest total for the team in 25 years.

In 2006, Green tied for second on the team with 7.5 sacks, tied for the team lead with three forced fumbles and set a career high with 57 tackles.

Green joins a Broncos free agent class that, to this point, includes defensive lineman Justin Bannan, cornerback Nathan Jones and running back J.J. Arrington.
