A former Jacksonville Jaguars draft bust has found a new home in Denver.
The Broncos have signed defensive end Derrick Harvey, who was released last week by the Jaguars.
Harvey played in every game but one in his three seasons with the Jaguars, and was a starter some of the time, but he was a major disappointment, given what the Jaguars expected of him. Jacksonville gave up the No. 26 pick in the 2008 draft as well as two third-round picks and a fourth round pick to move up to No. 8 overall and take Harvey. All they got out of him, for all that, was eight career sacks.
Now Harvey will try to make an impact in John Fox’s defense in Denver, where he’s unlikely to start but will have a good chance of making the team as a backup to starters Elvis Dumervil and Robert Ayers.
