The Denver Broncos bolstered their defensive line depth today by signing free agent tackle John Browning.

The 33-year-old Browning spent his first 11 pro seasons in Kansas City, but sat out last season with a variety of injuries.

He's played every position along the defensive front, seeing action in 121 regular season games, including 96 starts for the Chiefs.

Kansas City selected him in the third round out of West Virginia in 1996.

The Broncos needed a reinforcement after trading tackle Gerard Warren to Oakland this week, and losing Ebenezer Ekuban to a torn Achilles' tendon over the weekend.

Ekuban was the starter at right defensive end who moved inside on passing downs.

In 2005, Browning started 12 games and registered 35 tackles, two sacks and a career-high four pass breakups.

For his career, he has 27-and-a-half sacks, four fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles.
