The Broncos' pursuit of defensive back Charles Woodson ended when he chose to play for the Raiders. Woodson likely has an opportunity for far more playing time in Oakland, and he'll be closer to his business interests.

When the Broncos presented Quentin Jammer with the same opportunity, to have a role on a team with championship aspirations, he was quick to say yes. Jammer signed his contract Wednesday and was on the practice field Thursday.

"I thought coming in here they had a great football team, great coaching staff," Jammer said. "Hands down, if you look across the league, what better place to go than Denver to have a chance to play for a championship?"

"He's another guy who can come in and compete," Broncos coach John Fox said. "He'll have some versatility with us. We're going to try him a little bit at safety as well."

Jammer started at least four games in all 11 of his seasons with the Chargers at cornerback — 161 career starts in all. However, with his 34th birthday approaching next month, the Broncos see him as a situational fit in their defense, a player who could line up and handle the responsibilities at cornerback or safety.
