BRONCOS CORNERBACK TONY CARTER SIGNS EXCLUSIVE-RIGHTS FREE AGENT TENDER

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.— Denver Broncos cornerback Tony Carter signed his exclusive-rights free agent tender, it was announced on Monday.

Carter (5-9, 175 pounds) is a fifth-year player who saw action in a career-high 15 games for the Broncos last season and tied for the team lead with 12 passes defensed in addition to scoring two defensive touchdowns (65-yd. FR, 40-yd. INT).

In four NFL seasons with Denver (2009, ’11-12) and New England (2010), Carter has played 22 regular-season games (1 start) and totaled 26 tackles (22 solo), two interceptions (55 yds.), 13 passes defensed and two fumble recoveries.

Originally signed by the Broncos as a college free agent in 2009, Carter played two games (1 start) for Denver during his rookie season before spending time on New England’s practice squad and active roster during the 2010 campaign. He re-signed with the Broncos in 2011 and contributed in three regular-season games and two playoff contests before his breakout 2012 season in which he allowed the fewest completions (27) in the NFL among players targeted at least 60 times.

A 50-game starter at Florida State University, where he earned second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors following his senior season, Carter attended Mandarin High School in Jacksonville, Fla., and was born on May 24, 1986.
