After visiting with the organization, Kasim Edebali has signed with the Denver Broncos, the team announced Monday.

The three-year NFL veteran who arrived in the NFL from Boston College has been fairly productive in his three seasons as a part-time contributor. In only two career starts Edebali has produced eight sacks with his best season coming in 2015 where he managed to get to the quarterback five times.

Edebali, who’s listed as a 253-pound defensive end and will convert to outside linebacker in the Broncos 3-4 scheme, is also credited as an important contributor on special teams a role that’s made him a regular on the New Orleans Saints 53 man roster.

With the Broncos having a player with a similar skillset and utility in Dakota Watson who’s an unrestricted free agent, Edebali can fill needs as both a situational pass rusher and in special teams coverage.

The former undrafted free agent has 54 career tackles in his three seasons and put on a show in one of his two career starts in 2015, sacking Matthew Stafford twice and adding six tackles against the Detroit Lions.

Edebali is now the fifth signing for the Broncos during the free agency period, all of which have been players who play in the trenches as the team searches for more depth up front.

Born in Boulder and raised in Milan, Italy like Danilo Gallinari. Also like Gallo, I moved to the States at 18; unlike Gallo, I wasn’t drafted by the Knicks but came to attend Western State Colorado University (go Mountaineers!). I graduated in 2009 with a major in Communications and Media and two minors in Journalism and Philosophy.

After working in the linguistic field for a few years and listening to sports radio ALL DAY at work, I decided to do it myself and it changed my life around. (Now, I can say I couldn’t be happier and am proudly married to the love of my life Kate.) I moved back to Gunnison and started volunteering for the NPR affiliate up in Crested Butte, while also starting to contribute on an NFL podcast for A 10 minute bit on one podcast turned into being a regular, year-round on three different podcasts on the NFL, College Football, and the NFL Draft. I’ve since started writing on and as well as writing in depth Draft analysis for in the past 3 years. I love the Draft and knowing the stars of the future before everyone else. My sports mount Rushmore is Terrell Davis, Patrick Roy, Italian soccer star Roberto Baggio, and John Elway, deal with it!
