BRONCOS SIGN T D'ANTHONY BATISTE TO FUTURE CONTRACT

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Tuesday signed fourth-year tackle D’Anthony Batiste to a future contract, it was announced.

Batiste (6-foot-4, 314 pounds), who finished the 2009 season on Denver’s practice squad, is a tackle who played 12 games (4 starts) in his career. He appeared in eight contests (0 starts) in 2009 with Washington after replacing Chris Samuels in Washington’s Week 5 contest against Carolina. He saw action in the next seven contests before being waived on Dec. 15. Batiste joined the Broncos’ practice squad on Dec. 23.

Batiste, who entered the NFL in 2006 as a college free agent with Dallas, joined Carolina’s active roster as a rookie after starting the season on the Cowboys’ practice squad. He was waived at the start of the 2007 season by the Panthers but was claimed by Atlanta and declared inactive for the Falcons’ first 10 games before making his professional debut against Indianapolis on Nov. 22 as a starter. He remained in the starting lineup for the next three games before being declared inactive for the final two games that season.

Batiste, 27, was waived at the end of Atlanta’s 2008 training camp before joining Washington’s active roster on Dec. 10, 2008.

A four-year letterman at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Batiste was selected as a second-team All-Sun Belt Conference performer as a senior. He started his collegiate career as a tight end before switching to guard during his freshman season.

Batiste attended Marksville High School in Marksville, La., where he helped lead the team to three consecutive playoff appearances from 1996–98. He was named all-state, all-district, all-parish and all-region during high school career.

D’Anthony Batiste was born on March 29, 1982.
