The Denver Broncos have announced the signing of two veteran safeties — Shiloh Keo and Brandian Ross. Fans are familiar with Keo, a fifth-year player who appeared in four regular season games and two postseason contests for the Broncos in 2015.
Keo, 5-foot-11, 205 pounds, totaled five tackles and an interception for the Broncos, after he importuned defensive coordinator Wade Phillips on Twitter for a roster spot.
Keo brings energy, intensity and physicality to the Broncos secondary, but he's not the best cover artist. He was arrested during the offseason for driving under the influence in Idaho.
Brandian Ross, a 6-foot-0, 190-pound former undrafted rookie free agent, has competed in 45 regular season games, since entering the NFL in 2012. He has spent time with the Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders and most recently, the San Diego Chargers.
Ross was signed as a UFA by Green Bay in 2012 out of Youngstown University. From 2013-14, Ross started 23-of-29 games for the Raiders and totaled the third-most tackles (127) on the team during that time.
Behind incumbent starters, T.J. Ward and Darian Stewart, the Broncos had zero depth heading into today's beginning of the offseason training program. Expect Denver to add further to their safety ranks via the NFL Draft and college free agent pool.
