When Josh McDaniels arrived in Denver, there wasn’t a lot of leftover defensive talent to work with.
One player they have identified as a keeper, however, is outside linebacker Mario Haggan. They quickly promoted him to a starting job on the weak side, and now have extended his contract by adding two years and $3.5 million, including $1.25 million guaranteed, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
It’s a nice chunk of change for someone who has been a special teamer throughout his career. And it’s also a nice bargain for the Broncos if Haggan keeps his starting job for most of the deal.
