ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos are keeping up their offseason spending spree, agreeing to a deal with backup quarterback Chris Simms.

The Simms deal was announced Thursday. He'll apparently step in for Patrick Ramsey, who served as Jay Cutler's backup the past two seasons.

The Broncos have been the most active team throughout free agency, adding 12 seasoned veterans or career backups since the signing period began a week ago.

The Broncos recently said Cutler isn't on the trading block after his name was brought up in discussions for Matt Cassel. Those reports upset Denver's Pro Bowl quarterback.

The 28-year-old Simms was signed by Tennessee last season, sitting on the Titans' roster as the no. 3 quarterback behind Kerry Collins and Vince Young.
