The Broncos are going to be without defensive lineman Jared Crick because of a back injury that will require surgery, so they have added another veteran to the mix to help fill the hole.

Mike Klis of KUSA reports that the team has signed former Seahawk Ahtyba Rubin to their 53-man roster. He visited with the Bills and 49ers recently.

Rubin was dropped by the Seahawks after they traded for Sheldon Richardson ahead of cutdown day earlier this month. Rubin started every game for the Seahawks during his two seasons with the team and recorded 75 tackles, three sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception. He spent the first seven years of his career with the Browns.

The Broncos also placed Billy Winn on injured reserve earlier this year and played without Zach Kerr in the season opener against the Chargers. Derek Wolfe, Adam Gotsis, Domata Peko and Shelby Harris round out the defensive line group for Denver.

    Oh ya, so solid that two of the worst teams in the league passed on him.

  2. Our D line looked pretty good as is last week against the Chargers. Really excited about Gotsis and Shelby Harris.

    Certainly not a good sign, especially since Seattle now has to back up the Brinks truck for immature and overrated Richardson.

    Seattle doesn’t have to back up even an old Chevy pickup truck for Sheldon Richardson.
    They rented him for a year. If he asks for the moon they’ll find a cheaper option that fits their scheme, just as they have in the past.
