Defensive back Ty Law has agreed to terms on a deal with the Broncos. Kevin Poston, Law’s agent, confirmed the news Friday in an e-mail to The Associated Press. The agreement came after Denver’s media availability and a Broncos spokesman said the team had no comment.
Law is expected to sign the deal Saturday, pending the passing of his physical. He may even make it out to practice as the Broncos (6-1) prepare to host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night.
The 35-year-old Law, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, will fit right in with veterans Champ Bailey, Andre’ Goodman, Brian Dawkins and Renaldo Hill, all in their 30s.
Law becomes the latest former New England player to reunite with Broncos coach Josh McDaniels, who spent his previous eight seasons as an assistant with the Patriots.
A first-round pick by New England in 1995, Law helped the Patriots to three Super Bowl titles. He played for the New York Jets last season.
The Broncos have been relatively quiet on the free-agent front so far during the season, making just their second move.
Last week, Denver signed 16-year veteran punter Mitch Berger in place of Brett Kern. Berger got off to a rusty start, averaging 38.4 yards on eight punts in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens last weekend.
