Broncos Sign Marvin Austin

The Broncos have signed defensive tackle Marvin Austin, the team announced in a press release. The terms of the deal aren’t public, but it’s likely a one-year pact for the minimum salary that will give Austin a chance to make the Denver roster this summer.

Austin, 25, was 2011 second-round draft pick by the Giants. After tearing his pectoral and missing his entire rookie season, he went to play in only eight games for New York. He spent time with both the Dolphins and the Cowboys in 2013. Austin has had some off-the-field issues in the past, but he’s young enough that he could still possibly contribute to the Broncos.
