Free-agent safety Jim Leonhard has agreed to a one-year deal with Denver Broncos Saturday, the team announced. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Leonhard, played the last three seasons with the Jets, was in Denver for a workout during the week.

"The knee is feeling great and I am ready to go. I am getting antsy, football is right around the corner and I don't have a team, kind of getting antsy ready to get back on that field," Leonhard said a few weeks ago.

Leonhard, who injured his patellar tendon in Week 14 of last season, originally signed with the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin in 2005.
