DENVER -- Cornerback Andre' Goodman reached an agreement on a five-year contract with the Denver Broncos, a team that has been busy retooling its secondary through free agency.
NFL Network's Adam Schefter reported Sunday that the five-year deal is worth $25 million, with more than $10 million guaranteed.
Goodman, who helped the Miami Dolphins turn around their fortunes last year, is the third defensive back the Broncos have lured to Denver since free agency began late last week. The team also added veteran safeties Brian Dawkins and Renaldo Hill. Hill played with Goodman in Miami for the last three seasons.
The Broncos have made defense a high priority this offseason after ranking at or near the bottom of the NFL in every major defensive category last season, when they surrendered 448 points.
"Andre's very happy about the whole situation," said Goodman's agent, Jason Chayut. "Look at that secondary, it's tremendous. He's really excited."
Goodman started 16 games for the Dolphins last season, leading the team with five interceptions and 19 pass breakups.
