BRONCOS SIGN FREE-AGENT DE VANCE WALKER TO TWO-YEAR CONTRACT

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Thursday signed free-agent defensive end Vance Walker to a two-year contract, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced.

Walker (6-2, 305 pounds) is a seventh-year player who spent his first six NFL seasons with Atlanta (2009-12), Oakland (2013) and Kansas City (2014) after being selected by the Falcons in the seventh round (210th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft from Georgia Tech.

In 96 career regular-season games (28 starts), Walker has totaled 138 tackles (96 solo), 10 sacks (57 yds.), two passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He has started 2-of-4 postseason games played and contributed six tackles (4 solo) with one sack (8 yds.).

Walker has seen action in at least 15 games in each of the last five seasons while producing multiple sacks in his last four campaigns.

He started 29-of-49 career games played at Georgia Tech, where he was a first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection as a senior and was named a finalist for the Bednarik Award, presented annually to the nation’s top defensive player.

Walker attended Fort Mill (S.C.) High School and was born on April 26, 1987.
