The Broncos have agreed to terms with inside linebacker Alex Singleton on a one-year deal, Mike Klis of 9News reports. Singleton will line up next to Josey Jewell, whom the Broncos re-signed to a two-year deal earlier this week.

Singleton led the Eagles in tackles each of the past two seasons, totaling 257 tackles while playing all 32 games.

The Eagles, though, did not tender him as a restricted free agent.

Singleton was undrafted by the NFL out of Montana State, but he was a first-round pick in the CFL. He spent three seasons with Calgary before joining the Eagles in 2019. He played exclusively on special teams in 10 games that year before taking on a defensive role the past two seasons.

Klis also reports that Broncos receiver Tim Patrick converted $6.9 million of his roster bonus to a signing bonus, a move that saves the Broncos roughly $4.6 million in cap space.

  1. As the Eagles can tell you, if Singleton is starting then your LB corps has issues. He’s a decent special teams guy but he gets run over in the run game and run by in pass the game.

    Projecting him into the starting lineup seems like a stretch… or the Broncos LB corps is even worse than the Eagles (well, before the Reddick signing anyway)

  2. Singleton is a great player. He’s a little undersized but always around the ball. He rarely missed tackles and always gives his best effort on each play. I hope he does well in Denver
