Broncos Sign DL Christian Covington

Christian Covington is heading to Denver. The defensive lineman is signing with the Broncos, reports SiriusXM’s Adam Caplan (via Twitter).

It’ll be a one-year deal worth $1.75MM for the 26-year-old. The deal includes $625K in guaranteed money.

Following a four-year stint with the Texans, the former sixth-rounder signed with the Cowboys last offseason. He ended up having one of the most productive seasons of his career, compiling a career-high 28 tackles to go with one sack and one pass defended in 16 games (six starts).

In total, Covington has made 66 regular season appearances (15 starts) during his career, collecting 8.5 sacks.

Covington will be competing with rookie third-rounder McTelvin Agim for snaps behind starter Mike Purcell.
