The Denver Broncos signed free agent David Veikune today.
To make room for Veikune, the team waived linebacker Jarvis Moss.And some bad news for Pisa Tinoisamoa, who has been ruled out of Thursday's game vs the Dolphins due to a knee injury.
Veikune played in 10 games for Cleveland last season after the Browns drafted him in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-2, 257 pound linebacker registered eight tackles in three preseason games this season before being waived on Sept. 7.
In college at Hawaii, Veikune appeared in 41 games as a defensive end, earning All-Western Athletic Conference honors in his final two seasons.
With the Broncos, the 24-year-old will wear No. 90.
It's a significant loss considering Tinoisamoa is sixth on the team in tackles despite playing less than two-thirds of the time. Coach Lovie Smith has praised his effort routinely this season.
Tinoisamoa was listed as limited on the injury report after practice Tuesday. Knee injuries cost him 14 games last season, but he has been healthy up to this point in the Bears' 6-3 season.
