Broncos Sign Free Agent Pass Rusher

Nobody's more excited about the Denver Broncos signing free agent sack specialist Simeon Rice than Broncos safety John Lynch.

The two won a Super Bowl together in Tampa Bay in 2002.

The Broncos signed Rice yesterday.

Lynch calls Rice one of the great pass-rushers of all-time and says anyone would be fortunate to get him.

Rice's 121 career sacks rank second to Michael Strahan among active players. He was released by Tampa Bay this summer after the Buccaneers signed first-round draft pick Gaines Adams.

Rice had failed a physical after reporting to camp but has since passed his medical tests. The 33-year-old started the first eight games last year before being sidelined by a shoulder injury.
