Broncos Sign Veteran DT Ahtyba Rubin

Peter Schrager is reporting that the Broncos are expected to sign DT Ahtyba Rubin to a contract at some point Friday.

  • Mike Klis confirms that the Broncos are signing Rubin to a contract.

Rubin was linked to the Broncos a few weeks ago when the Seahawks were fielding trade offers for him before they eventually cut him loose as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

Rubin, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Browns back in 2008. He spent seven years in Cleveland before signing a one-year deal with the Seahawks.

Rubin was entering the second year of a three-year, $12 million contract that contained $5.5 million guaranteed and set to earn a base salary of $1.7 million this year when the Seahawks cut him loose last weekend.

In 16 games for the Seahawks and recorded 38 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 90 interior defensive lineman out of 125 qualifying players.

We had him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
