Broncos re-sign safety David Bruton to 3-year deal

The Denver Broncos have re-signed backup safety David Bruton to

a three-year deal, keeping their special teams ace from entering

free agency Tuesday.

Bruton has been the team’s top special teams player since the

Broncos selected him in the fourth round of the 2009 draft out of

Notre Dame.

On Monday morning, Bruton tweeted, ”Still a Bronco! Deals done!

Blessed to continue a career in the NFL.”

The Broncos also are trying to re-sign defensive tackle Kevin

Vickerson before he hits free agency and they’ve asked defensive

end Elvis Dumervil to take a pay cut. If not, he’ll be traded or

released before Saturday when his $12 million salary for 2013

becomes guaranteed. Dumervil is also due $10 million in 2014 and $8

million in 2015.
