ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos have agreed to terms with linebacker Steven Johnson on a new one-year contract, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced on Tuesday.

Johnson (6-1, 237 pounds) is a fourth-year player who appeared in 41 regular-season games (7 starts) during his first three seasons in Denver after being signed by the Broncos as a college free agent from the University of Kansas in 2012.

In addition to totaling a team-best 27 special-teams stops since his rookie year, Johnson has posted 23 career tackles (14 solo), 0.5 sacks (0.5 yds.) and one fumble recovery on defense.

In 2014, Johnson played 14 regular-season games, including a career-high seven starts at middle linebacker, and collected 22 tackles (13 solo) to go along with 10 special-teams stops. He also was recognized as one of the Broncos’ Community Champion Award winners.

Johnson led the Big 12 Conference with 124 tackles as a senior for the Jayhawks in 2011. He graduated from Strath Haven High School in Wallingford, Pa., and was born on March 28, 1988.
