Green to Broncos, Salaam to Jags

The Denver Broncos have signed free agent tackle Cornell Green from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Green is a four year NFL veteran. Meanwhile, tackle Ephraim Salaam, who was released by Denver earlier this month, has joined the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The 6 foot 6, 315 pound Green has played the past two seasons with the Buccaneers. He played in 24 games and started eight. He is a versatile lineman who can play multiple positions and was a member of the Bucs Super Bowl championship squad.

He originally entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Atlanta Falcons in 1999. After participating in the 2000 training camp with the Washington Redskins, he moved on to the Jets and then the Dolphins.

He was acquired from the Dolphins by the Bucs for a seventh round draft pick in August, 2002. Green played college ball at Central Florida.

The Broncos continue to focus on offense after a number of free agent signings on the defensive side of the ball. Green's acquisition comes just a day after Denver signed former San Francisco running back Garrison Hearst.

Meanwhile, former Broncos left tackle Ephraim Salaam was picked up by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Salaam, who started 14 games for Denver last year, was released earlier this month in a cost cutting move.

The seven-year veteran was a seventh-round draft pick by the Falcons in 1998. He started 55 games in Atlanta before moving on to Denver.
