He has notched 82 career tackles (65 solo), three sacks, one interception, four passes defensed, two forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries. He brings competition to Denver's inside linebacker group.
But arguably the biggest benefit to signing Watson is his special teams prowess. With the departure of special teams captain David Bruton, the Broncos are in need of experienced leadership in the third phase.
Watson's place on the roster is in no way guaranteed. He will have to compete and earn a spot on the final roster.
