Broncos sign LB Cody Barton to one-year deal

The Broncos have signed veteran inside linebacker Cody Barton, his agent, David Canter, announced Friday. A source told The Denver Post that it’s a one-year deal.

Barton, a third-round pick in 2019, spent the 2023 season in Washington, where he totaled 121 tackles and an interception in 13 games. He had seven games where he recorded at least 10 tackles.

Before playing for the Commanders, he spent four seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, playing in 65 games (16 starts). He carved himself a bigger role in Seattle’s defense in 2022 when he started in 11 games, totaling a career-best 136 tackles and two sacks.

Barton played four seasons at Utah. He received All-Pac-12 honorable mention as a senior after posting a team-best 117 tackles (11½ for loss) and four sacks.

With Josey Jewell signing a three-year deal with the Carolina Panthers, Barton provides depth at inside linebacker and could possibly start alongside Alex Singleton. Jonas Griffith is set to return from a season-ending torn ACL, while rookie Drew Sanders is expected to transition to outside linebacker.

Barton is the Broncos’ third new addition via free agency this offseason, joining safety Brandon Jones (Miami) and defensive tackle Malcolm Roach (New Orleans).
