The seventh overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft isn’t done just yet.

Mark Barron, a linebacker who has been out of work since the Steelers released him early this year, signed with the Broncos today, according to multiple reports.

A draft disappointment with the Buccaneers, Barron lasted two and a half years in Tampa Bay before he was traded to the Rams during the 2014 season. He ended up lasting through 2018 with the Rams, then played 2019 in Pittsburgh.

Barron will have a week to show he still has something left and try to make the Broncos’ regular-season roster.

    If by “help” you mean depth to sub in for niche packages or in case someone else gets hurt, he’s good for that. He’s solid as a lighter hybrid safety/ILB, but not someone you’ll notice on the field. If Denver’s problems at at MLB/ILB are beyond depth issues, those are still going to be there.

  4. Interesting note here. As stated Barron was a Steelers linebacker. The Steelers traded picks with a linebacker needy Denver to draft Devin Bush, who promptly took a lot of snaps away from Barron. This ultimately led to Barron’s release from the Steelers, now Denver signs him…
