Broncos add linebacker depth with Paris Lenon


With Von Miller expected to miss at least six games and Stewart Bradley out after wrist surgery, the Broncos were stretched thin at linebacker. So they’ve added someone with plenty of experience.

According to Jeff Legwold of, the Broncos are signing linebacker Paris Lenon, and he’s expected to be at practice today.

The 35-year-old Lenon was with the Cardinals last, and has spent time with the Rams, Lions and Packers.

While he’s more of an inside linebacker than a direct replacement for Miller, he’s a smart and durable player, who started all 48 games for the Cardinals the last three seasons.

    Or maybe because Stewart Bradley is injured? Ever think about that, since he was playing inside lb before he was injured…

    Last time Paris Lenon was on the same roster as Stewart Bradley….Bradley became the overpaid bench warmer. Bradley had a $10M signing bonus, but never started a game because of Lenon. Lenon can play!

    Always liked Lenon. the Pats cut him a few weeks into training camp a few years back, was never sure why.

    He was the worst lb on a REALLY bad Lions D a couple years back so I am sure this should work out incredibly well
