Harvey, Fells Added

Posted Aug 1, 2011

Free agent defensive end Derrick Harvey and tight end Daniel Fells were added to the roster Monday.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- A busy day of transactions continued for the Broncos on Monday, as the club signed free agent defensive end Derrick Harvey and tight end Daniel Fells.

To make room for the moves, the team waived cornerback James Rogers and safety Nick Polk.

Harvey played in 47 of a possible 48 games in his three year career with Jacksonville, starting 32, since being draft in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

He made 88 tackles, adding eight sacks, five passes defensed and an interception.

Fells, who spent the last three seasons with St. Louis, has 69 catches for 745 yards and five touchdowns in his career, and was also known for his blocking with the Rams.

Broncos fans got a glimpse of both Fells and Harvey last season -- Fells made two catches in a Rams win at INVESCO Field at Mile High, and Harvey made two tackles in a Jaguars win in Jacksonville.

As with any player joining Denver with a new contract, the two newcomers cannot practice with the team until Thursday -- the start of the new league year.
