M, started 16 games for the Washington Redskins in 2006. He also has played for Chicago and Cleveland.
Lewis played the last five seasons for Seattle. The former University of Texas player started 19 games for the Seahawks in his career, including the Super Bowl after the 2005 season. Lewis played in five games last season before being placed on injured reserve on Dec. 12 because of a toe injury.
The signing Holdman and Lewis comes 13 days after Denver severed ties with team captain Al Wilson. A combination of a neck injury and salary cap concerns led to his release. Wilson was the team's leading tackler last season.
The moves may alter Denver's draft-day strategy as the Broncos were potentially looking at linebackers this weekend. Denver has the 21st pick in the first round of the draft.
