With Von Miller facing a possible six-game suspension and middle linebacker Stewart Bradley out several weeks with a wrist injury, the Denver Broncos are suddenly shaky at linebacker, which is why the Broncos announced Tuesday they signed veteran Paris Lenon.
Lenon started all 16 games the last three seasons for the Arizona Cardinals.
Mike Klis of the Denver Post wrote yesterday about the Broncos' adjustments at linebacker, prior to the addition of Lenon:
Stewart Bradley, who had seemingly won the starting middle linebacker position, will have surgery on his left wrist and be out several weeks.https://twitter.com/DenverBroncos/status/369858098711646210
The Broncos are moving Wesley Woodyard from weakside linebacker to the middle. Danny Trevathan, who starts at weakside linebacker in the Broncos' nickel defense, is now also their starting weakside linebacker in the base defense.
Von Miller remains the Broncos' starting strongside linebacker pending hisappeal of an NFL suspension.
