Veteran cornerback Quentin Jammer, a top-10 pick in 2002 who spent 11 seasons with the Chargers, is staying in the AFC West.
Jammer has signed a one-year deal with the Broncos, per a source with knowledge.
Details aren’t currently available, but the contract is believed to be worth more than the veteran minimum salary.
Earlier this offseason, the Broncos added Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, another former first-round pick. And the cornerstone of the secondary continues to be cornerback Champ Bailey, a first-rounder of the Redskins in 1999.
Speaking of the Redskins, they had interest in Jammer, but only via the minimum-salary benefit.
Jammer’s arrival surely will spark speculation that the Broncos are considering sliding Bailey to safety, despite an insistence that they won’t. Or maybe that’s where Jammer will end up.
Either way, the Broncos have taken significant steps to improve the back end of their defense in 2013.
