Three days after releasing Shiloh Keo, the Broncos have agreed to re-sign the strong safety, reports Mike Klis of 9News (Twitter link). Keo was with the Broncos in Week 1 as he served the first part of a two-game suspension for an offseason DUI arrest, but the club briefly parted with him Saturday. Now that Keo’s ban is over, he’s free to play again.
The 28-year-old Keo first signed with the Broncos last December after injuries to David Bruton, T.J. Ward and Darian Stewart weakened their safety depth. Keo, an ex-Texan, helped put himself on the Broncos’ radar by reaching out to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips via Twitter about his interest in joining the club. He ultimately played in seven games last season with Super Bowl-winning Denver, including its three playoff victories, and added a Week 17 interception against San Diego.
Months after both the end of their season and his arrest, the Broncos re-signed Keo in April. Now that he’s once again a member of the team, the 2011 fifth-round pick will join rookies Justin Simmons and Will Parks as reserve safeties behind starters T.J. Ward and Darian Stewart.
