The Broncos agreed to terms with inside linebacker Josey Jewell on a two-year contract, a league source confirmed.
Jewell, Denver’s fourth-round pick in 2018 out of Iowa, was limited to two games last season due to a torn pectoral. In 49 games for Denver (30 starts), Jewell has 217 tackles, with 12 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks.
With Jewell coming back, the Broncos will figure to pair the 27-year-old alongside fellow inside linebacker Baron Browning in the team’s 3-4 scheme. Alexander Johnson, who started opposite Jewell in Week 1 last year, remains a free agent.
