ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Monday agreed to terms on re-signing safety David Bruton to a three-year contract, Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway announced.
Bruton has played 61-of-64 possible regular-season games for Denver since he was selected in the fourth round (114th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft, ranking second on the club in special-teams tackles (32) during that span.
He appeared in every game in 2012, leading the Broncos in special-teams plays (376) and being named a third alternate for the Pro Bowl squad as a special-teamer.
For his career, Bruton has seen action in 61 regular-season contests (4 starts), totaling 34 tackles (31 solo), one interception (-2 yds.) and six passes defensed. He also owns 15 tackles (11 solo) and one pass defensed in three career postseason games (2 starts).
One of the top special-teams gunners in the nation during his collegiate career at the University of Notre Dame, Bruton became a starter for the Irish during his final two seasons, leading the team in tackles (182) and interceptions (7) during that stretch.
He attended Miamisburg (Ohio) High School, where he received all-district honors as a senior, and was born on July 23, 1987, in Winchester, Ky.
