Broncos sign Bannan, Jones

The DenverPost reports: Justin Bannan is returning to Colorado. The former University of Colorado star and Baltimore Ravens' defensive lineman reached an agreement in principal today with the Broncos on a five-year contract.

Bannan is an good (not great) pick up. He is big (over 6 foot and 300 pounds) and he's not to old (turning 31). He has only recorded 3 sacks in four years with the Ravens. Reportedly he isn't going to play Defensive End for Denver like he did in Baltimore, rather, the Broncos will move him to Defensive Tackle. That is a good move, he'll deffinatly have a chance to start, but I don't think the Broncos should close the door on other options for DT.
Another signing was just reported, first by Frank Schawb, and now Josina Anderson. Via Anderson's twitter page:
"Per Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth, the Broncos have agreed to terms with CB Nathan Jones."
I really like the Jones pickup. He'll add some competition to Solpmore Alphonso Smith. Last season Jones Forced two fumbles, a sack, and recorded 2 interceptions. If nothing else Jones adds some nice depth to back up Bailey, Goodman, and Smith.
