Broncos retaining LB Alex Singleton with three-year deal on first day of negotiating period

Denver spent a good chunk of Monday adding offensive pieces to its roster.

It also found time to retain one of its core defensive players.

The Broncos agreed to a three-year contract with linebacker Alex Singleton, the team’s leading tackler in 2022, getting him back in the building and ensuring that his status as a free agent lasted only a matter of hours.

Singleton’s deal is worth up to $18 million and comes with $9 million guaranteed, a source confirmed to The Post.

The California native arrived in Denver a year ago on a one-year, minimum salary deal but established himself quickly as a viable option at linebacker and core special teams player, too. Both Josey Jewell (four games) and Jonas Griffith (foot) missed time over the course of the season, and Singleton turned himself into a virtually every-down player. He finished the season with 163 tackles, most by a Denver defender since 2007.

At the NFL Combine, general manager George Paton said the franchise would “love” to get Singleton back in the fold.
