The Denver Broncos‘ second free agent signing of 2013 was agreeing on a new two-year deal with defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson.

The news was first reported by ESPN‘s Adam Schefter and later confirmed by the Denver Post‘s Mike Klis.  Details of Vickerson’s contract are unknown, but he will likely eat up to $2.5 million of Denver’s 2013 cap room.

Last season, Vickerson started alongside Justin Bannan (who is also a free agent).  The 6′-5″, 290-pound Vickerson had his best statistical season in 2012, when he recorded 40 tackles and 2 sacks.

According to the Denver Post, the team is still planning to visit with free agent DT Terrance Knighton.  More free agent visits are noted here.
