Broncos agree to terms with fifth-round pick Justin Strnad on rookie contract


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Fifth-round pick Justin Strnad has agreed to terms on his four-year rookie contract, the team announced Wednesday.

Strnad is the seventh member of the Broncos' 2020 draft class to agree to terms. Michael Ojemudia agreed to terms Tuesday, while McTelvin Agim, Albert Okwuegbunam, Netane Muti, Tyrie Cleveland and Derrek Tuszka agreed to terms earlier on Wednesday.

The 178th-overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft totaled 244 tackles, 22.5 tackles for loss, eight sacks, four interceptions and three forced fumbles during his career at Wake Forest. He is expected to compete for a rotational role at inside linebacker, and he could help the Broncos with his zone coverage skills.

Though Strnad suffered a season-ending injury in 2019, he has previously said he has made a full recovery.

Strnad and the rest of the team's rookies are scheduled to report to UCHealth Training Center on Thursday for COVID-19 testing.

Three of the Broncos' draft picks — including top picks Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler — have yet to agree to terms on their rookie deals.
