Broncos agree to terms with seventh-round pick Derrek Tuszka on rookie contract


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Seventh-round pick Derrek Tuszka has agreed to terms on his rookie contract, the Broncos announced Wednesday.

The edge rusher became the third member of the Broncos' 2020 draft class to agree to terms on his rookie deal, following Michael Ojemudia and Albert Okwuegbunam.

Over his four years at North Dakota State, Tuszka emerged as one of FCS football's top pass rushers, as he finished his senior season as the Missouri Valley Football Conference Defensive Player of the Year. Tuszka recorded 13.5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss on the year and also earned first-team honors on the 2019 AP FCS All-America team.

Of the Broncos' 10-man draft class, seven have yet to agree to terms on their rookie contracts.

Rookies are scheduled to report to UCHealth Training Center on Thursday for COVID-19 testing.
