Broncos sign center Dan Koppen
September 11, 2012
ENGLEWOOD – Former Pro Bowl center Dan Koppen, who spent nine season snapping the ball to Tom Brady in New England, will now have the chance to work with Peyton Manning.
Koppen signed with the Denver Broncos on Tuesday, two weeks after his release from the New England Patriots, where he played from 2003-11.
Koppen adds experienced depth to the interior line and might push starting center J.D. Walton for playing time.
The Broncos also waived backup center C.J. Davis and re-signed backup quarterback Caleb Hanie, who was released in a procedural move Saturday to provide the Broncos with some financial flexibility.
They also placed defensive tackle Ty Warren on injured reserve after he re-tore his right triceps in the opener. Warren has been on IR every season since 2009.
