ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Tuesday re-signed tight end Virgil Green to a new three-year contract, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced.
“Virgil has been a big part of our team the last four years and will continue to be in the future,” Elway said. “He’s been a reliable, solid contributor since the day he was drafted. We’re very excited Virgil is returning to the Broncos.”
Green has appeared in 56 regular-season games (17 starts) since being selected by the Broncos in the seventh round (204th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft from the University of Nevada. His career totals include 23 receptions for 206 yards (9.0 avg.) with one touchdown.
The fifth-year pro started a career-high nine games in 2014, including the last six contests of the season. He caught six passes for 74 yards (12.3 avg.) with one touchdown and contributed a career-best five special-teams tackles for the Broncos.
A first-team All-Mountain West Conference performer at Nevada, Green finished his collegiate career with 72 receptions for 939 yards (13.0 avg.) with 11 touchdowns.
Green was born on Aug. 3, 1988, in Tulare, Calif.
