Quentin Jammer is staying in the AFC West.
The veteran cornerback signed with the Denver Broncos on Wednesday, the team announced. Jammer spent his first 11 seasons with the San Diego Chargers.
This is a depth move by the Broncos, who already signed cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie during the early stages of free agency. Jammer's play has slipped with age (he'll be 34 in June), but he deepens the roster of an AFC favorite. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport noted that the Broncos' director of football administration is Mike Sullivan, who used to serve as Jammer's agent.
"Great team. Great coaches," Jammer said when asked why he signed with the Broncos, according to DenverBroncos.com editor Gray Caldwell. "I'm looking forward to winning a lot of football games."
Jammer will be greeted by some familiar faces in Denver. Shaun Phillips, Louis Vasquez and Jacob Hester are all current Broncos with Chargers ties.
"It's great to have familiar faces," Jammer said.
Jammer could be converted to safety, while serving as insurance at cornerback. It's the role the Broncos had in mind for Charles Woodson, who signed with the Oakland Raiders last week after a visit with the Broncos.
