ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Four more Broncos signed tenders Monday as they reported to UCHealth Training Center for the first day of the offseason workout program.
Inside linebacker Zaire Anderson, outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett and center James Ferentz, who all received exclusive-rights tenders in March, joined restricted free agent Todd Davis in signing those tenders.
Davis, in his first full year as a starter, filled in admirably following the departure of Danny Trevathan after the 2015-16 season. The 24-year-old out of Sacramento State recorded 97 tackles alongside Brandon Marshall.
Anderson, who played in 16 games and started one in 2016, recorded 14 tackles and forced a fumble. Barrett, who was slotted in a reserve role behind Von Miller, has seven career sacks and tallied 1.5 in 2016. He also forced a fumble against Kansas City in December.
Ferentz didn't see any regular-season action behind Matt Paradis, who didn't miss a snap for the second-consecutive year.
As players with fewer than three accrued seasons, ERFAs may only re-sign once their team issues tenders.
The players who have already signed exclusive-rights tenders are center Matt Paradis, running back Kapri Bibbs, wide receiver Bennie Fowler III, wide receiver Jordan Taylor and long snapper Casey Kreiter.
