ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos have signed linebacker Andra Davis as they continue to revamp their defense.
Davis was signed Monday. He fits in with the Broncos' plans to convert to a 3-4 defense since he played in a similar scheme with Cleveland.
Davis spent seven seasons with the Browns, finishing second on the team in tackles in 2008.
The Broncos have made defense a high priority after ranking at or near the bottom in every major defensive category last year, when they surrendered 448 points.
They've re-tooled their secondary, bringing in Andre Goodman, Brian Dawkins and Renaldo Hill. They also added depth at defensive line with Darrell Reid, a special teams standout who can play defensive end or linebacker in the 3-4 system.
