ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -The Denver Broncos bolstered their defensive line Wednesday by signing free agent tackle John Browning, who spent his first 11 seasons in Kansas City.
Browning sat out last season with an assortment of injuries.
He played every position along the defensive front, seeing action in 121 regular season games, including 96 starts for the Chiefs, who selected him in the third round out of West Virginia in 1996.
The Broncos needed a reinforcement after trading tackle Gerard Warren to Oakland this week and losing Ebenezer Ekuban to a torn Achilles' tendon over the weekend. Ekuban was the starter at right defensive end who moved inside on passing downs.
In 2005, Browning started 12 games and registered 35 tackles, two sacks and a career-high four pass breakups. For his career he has 27 1-2 sacks, four fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles.
