Dalton heads to Denver - finally

After securing a deal to hopefully shore up their third wide receiver spot, the Denver Broncos turned their sights towards the defense, coming to terms with former Baltimore Raven tackle Lional Dalton.

After securing a deal to hopefully shore up their third wide receiver slot, the Denver Broncos turned their sights towards the defense, coming to terms with former Baltimore Raven tackle Lional Dalton.

The contract, which calls for a $3 million signing bonus, is reported to be in the neighborhood of $22 million for 7-years.

Dalton nearly became a Bronco last season when, just prior to the NFL trading deadline, Denver agreed to deal running back Olandis Gary and a fourth round pick for the 6-foot-1, 322-pound Dalton and Baltimore's second round pick.

That agreement was negated however, when Terrell Davis suffered knee pains, and Mike Shanahan began having second thoughts about giving up Gary and further depleting his oft-injured running game.

The agreement paves the way for Trevor Pryce's projected move from starting tackle to defensive end, leaving Dalton to fill the spot left vacant by Pryce.
