Safety Leonhard lands with Broncos

National Football Post

No one can accuse the Denver Broncos of not loading up to go for it short term.

Team executive John Elway announced on Twitter that the Broncos have signed free agent safety Jim Leonhard to a contract. Leonhard had previously worked out for the Buffalo Bills. He underwent surgery last December after suffering a torn ACL and is trying to make his way back from that.

Leonhard is the latest veteran addition to the Broncos roster that began when they won the Peyton Manning sweepstakes during the off-season. Among the veterans to land in Denver since Manning include Tracy Porter, Drayton Florence, Joel Dreessen, Jacob Tamme, Derrick Harvey and Brandon Stokley.

With so many veterans added, it's almost as if the Broncos have borrowed some of George Allen's old philosophy with the 1970s Washington Redskins, who were nicknamed the "Over the Hill Gang." No word yet on whether the Broncos have contacted Billy Kilmer about being Manning's backup.
