The Broncos re-signed free agent defensive end Jason Hunter on Thursday, the team announced.
Hunter has made 128 tackles, 11 sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries in 88 career games (23 starts).
He joined the Broncos as a free agent prior to the 2012 season and has appeared in all 32 regular-season games and both playoff contests with the club. He posted a career-high 59 tackles, three sacks, one interception, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in 2010 while filling in for injured defensive end Elvis Dumervil.
Last season he finished with 20 tackles, one sack, one pass breakup, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
Hunter played 50 career games at Division I-AA Appalachian State University, where he helped lead the Mountaineers to a national title as a senior in 2005.
He joins Robert Ayers, Jeremy Beal and Elvis Dumervil as the defensive ends currently on the Broncos roster.
