The Denver Broncos reportedly hosted veteran linebacker Joe Shobert for a free-agent tour on Saturday,
Per ESPN NFL insider Field Yates.
The 28-year-old LB became a free agent after he was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers in March in a cap-saving move.
In his second season after being selected by the Cleveland Browns with a fourth-round pick in the 2016 draft,
Shobert led the NFL in tackles (144) and made his first and only Pro-Bowl selection.
He was traded to Pittsburgh in 2020 after a one-year stint with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Broncos aren't the only team that saw Schubert in this off-season.
Earlier this summer, the former pro bowler also met with the New Orleans Saints.
Schubert has made over 100 tackles in each of the last five seasons.
This past season with the Steelers, he made 112 tackles through 16 games and 15 starts.
If the Broncos sign Shobert, he will compete for linebacker rep alongside recently added Alex Singleton.
