The Broncos sign former No. 1 overall pick Courtney Brown and trade for DE Ebenezer Ekuban and DT Mike Myers. The Broncos send 1,000-yard RB Reuben Droughns to Cleveland for Ekuban and Myers.

Collectively, the deals help establish the “Brown-cos” defensive line that helps the Broncos finish fourth in the league in scoring defense and second in rushing defense.
