On the morning the Broncos’ voluntary offseason conditioning program kicked off, cornerback Tony Carter put pen to paper.
Carter had a breakout season with the team last year, setting career highs in every category — 24 tackles, two interceptions, 12 pass breakups, one fumble recovery and two defensive touchdowns — in 15 regular-season games.
He was one of just three players in the NFL to return both an interception and a fumble for a touchdown in 2012, and his 12 pass breakups were the most among NFL players that did not start a game.
Carter, who originally entered the NFL as a college free agent with the Broncos in 2009, also played in the team’s Divisional Round playoff game against Baltimore.
Entering his fifth NFL season, Carter is coming off a year in which he allowed the fewest completions (27) among all NFL players targeted at least 60 times.
