ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Saturday signed offensive lineman Eric Olsen, whom they selected in the sixth round (183rd overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft from the University of Notre Dame. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Olsen (6-foot-3, 305 pounds) saw time in 44 career games at Notre Dame, starting 31 contests at all three positions along the interior of the offensive line. He was penalized just once during his final 1,731 plays at Notre Dame and gave up only four sacks in his last two years with the Fighting Irish.

As a senior in 2009, Olsen earned third-team All-America honors from The Sporting News as a 12-game starter at center. He started 13 games at left guard as a junior after opening Notre Dame’s final six contests at right guard as a sophomore.

Named the Gatorade Player of the Year for New York as a senior at Brooklyn Poly Prep in Brooklyn, N.Y., Olsen was born on June 16, 1988, in Staten Island, N.Y.
