Broncos sign tackle Tyler Polumbus to bolster line

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The Denver Broncos have agreed to a one-year deal with veteran offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus and released safety Josh Bush.

Polumbus was released by the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday.

He drew the Broncos' interest because rookie left tackle Ty Sambrailo is dealing with an injured left shoulder that he hurt in the fourth quarter of Denver's win at Detroit on Sunday night.
