ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Thursday signed outside linebacker/defensive end Baraka Atkins to a future contract, it was announced. He will be officially added to Denver’s roster at the conclusion of the 2009 NFL season in February.

Atkins (6-foot-4, 268 pounds) is a fourth-year defensive end who totaled 28 tackles (19 solo), including two sacks (7 yds.), in 21 games (0 starts) for Seattle from 2007-08. Atkins also saw time on San Francisco’s active roster in 2009, but did not appear in a game.

Atkins entered the NFL as Seattle’s fourth-round selection (120th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft from the University of Miami. He played in 49 games (45 starts) for the Hurricanes, totaling 175 tackles (84 solo), 18 sacks and nine pass breakups.
