Broncos Bolster Defense with Levi Wallace Signing

Three days before the NFL draft opens, the Denver Broncos continued to try to bolster their depth chart on defense.

The Broncos are expected to sign cornerback Levi Wallace to a one-year deal, sources told ESPN on Monday morning. The deal is expected to be completed by the end of the day Monday.

Wallace has played in 83 games in his career with the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers, with 70 starts. For the Steelers last season, he finished with 38 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 11 passes defended.

The Broncos have an opening in the starting lineup at cornerback opposite two-time Pro Bowl selection Pat Surtain II. Last week, Broncos general manager George Paton said that Riley Moss and Damarri Mathis were in the mix to compete for that opening but that the team was still on the hunt for help at the position.

The Broncos have plenty of needs, given it just missed the playoffs for the eighth consecutive year. Outside linebacker, tight end, defensive line, defensive back, and depth at tackle are all needs for the Broncos.
