The Broncos on Tuesday claimed linebacker Bruce Davis off waivers from the New England Patriots.
Davis was drafted in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The second-year player saw time in five games with the Steelers as a rookie, then spent most of the 2009 season on the Patriots’ practice squad.
Davis tallied 29 quarterback sacks in his collegiate career at UCLA — second in school history — along with 137 tackles, 42.5 stops for loss and 17 passes defensed. In 50 games for the Bruins, Davis started 28 contests at right defensive end, causing six fumbles and recovering three.
He earned first-team All-American honors from College Football News as a junior and was voted All-American second-team and All-Pac-10 first-team as a senior.
