Browns free agent linebacker Andra Davis, a two-time co-captain, signed with the Denver Broncos Monday. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
He is expected to start at inside linebacker next to D.J. Williams in the Broncos' new 3-4 scheme. Davis reportedly came to terms with Denver Saturday.
A fifth-round pick out of Florida in 2002, Davis spent seven seasons with the Browns and led them in tackles three times. Last season he finished second with 134 (72 solos) and added an interception.
Davis played in 105 career games with 83 starts and totalled 908 tackles (557 solos), 8.5 sacks, eight interceptions, 28 pass breakups, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
Last December, Davis knew he might be playing his final games in Cleveland. Before the season, he accepted a pay cut and had the final two years of his contract terminated.
''I always believe in myself. I know I can still play this game,'' he said in December. ''Whether it be here next year ... I'm pretty much 100 percent positive it will be somewhere else if it's not here. I know I have a lot still to offer. I'm going to continue to do what I've been doing, being professional, coming to work every day and doing my best.''
