Redskins strike deal with safety David Bruton

Well into the second phase of free agency, the Washington Redskins aren't finished adding help.

The team on Tuesday signed safety David Bruton, who spent the past seven seasons as a spot starter and valuable special-teamer for the Super Bowl champion Broncos.

Per multiple reports, Bruton inked a three-year deal with the 'Skins.

Bruton's campaign was cut short in 2015 when he broke his leg in a December loss to the Steelers. As the No. 3 safety in Denver, the 28-year-old defender played nearly 500 snaps before the injury. Bruton has a shot to play a similiar role in Washington, padding out a safety group that struggled in 2015.

Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan has used this offseason to trim cap costs and sign a rash of complimentary, affordable players. Known around the league as one of the NFL's top talent evaluators, the crafty McCloughan has landed another solid piece in Bruton.
