After 11 seasons with the Chargers, defensive back Quentin Jammer is joining one of San Diego's AFC West rivals.
The 33-year-old veteran signed with Denver on Wednesday, the Broncos announced. Jammer is due to be on the field for the Broncos' organized team activity Thursday.
According to the Denver Post, Jammer will move to safety after years as a cornerback. The newspaper reported the Jammer received a one-year deal that will pay him approximately the veteran minimum, $940,000.
Jammer was Plan B for the Denver defensive backfield after free agent Charles Woodson recently signed with the Oakland Raiders.
Jammer will have some old friends on hand when he arrives in Englewood, Colo. Two of his ex-Chargers teammates, right guard Louis Vasquez and linebacker Shaun Phillips, also signed free agent deals with the Broncos in the offseason.
During his time in San Diego, Jammer was something of an iron man. Over the past 10 years, he missed just two games (one in 2007, one in 2011), and he was only out of the starting lineup for those two games plus another in '07.
Last year, he finished with 64 tackles, nine passes defensed, three interceptions and one forced fumble. He also scored the first touchdown of his career, on an 80-yard interception return Oct. 15 against Denver.
