Broncos get Montee Ball under contract

The Denver Broncos have announced that they’ve signed rookie running back Montee Ball.  

As the club wrapped up its final minicamp of the offseason, running back Montee Ball and cornerback Kayvon Webster were wrapping up their contracts with the Broncos.

 

The rookies became the fifth and sixth of the club’s seven draft picks to officially sign with the team. Only first-round pick Sylvester Williams remains unsigned.

 

At the University of Wisconsin, Ball racked up 5,140 rushing yards and 77 rushing touchdowns — along with six receiving scores — in his career. Fifty-five of those rushing scores came in the last two seasons.

 

Webster, a University of South Florida product, accumulated 190 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, three interceptions, 15 pass breakups, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in his collegiate career.
