According to Aaron Wilson of PFT, former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Nick Greisen signed a one year deal with Denver. This Wisconsin graduate measures in at 6’1 and 250 pounds. Greisen had previously had a 3 year, $4 million, with $1 million and as a signing bonus. The Ravens decided to cut Greisen to clear up $716,000 in the salary cap (most likely to free up space to re-sign Terrell Suggs and Ray Lewis). The article states:
A former New York Giants fifth round draft pick from Wisconsin, Greisen is known as a tough reserve linebacker who’s adept at special teams.
With some of the draft picks and now this, it seems that head coach Josh McDaniels is very dedicated to improving the special teams which helped contribute to Denver placing 32nd in the league for field placement. Greisen, an inside linebacker, backed up Lewis last and and should provide good competition during training camp as well as dominante on special teams.
I like this signing, Darrel Reid, Greisen, rookies David Bruton, Darcel McBath, Alphonso Smith, and second year linebacker Spencer Larsen should provide great depth for special teams. Hopefully now the fans won’t have to see Denver fighting out of their own 10-yard line as much anymore.
