Bron­cos: Den­ver is bring­ing back de­fen­sive line­man Zach Kerr on a twoyear deal.

Kerr played in 27 games for the Bron­cos over the last two sea­sons. He had 52 tack­les and two sacks.

The 6-foot-2, 334-pound Kerr said he drew in­ter­est in free agency from teams in the AFC North and NFC West, but in the end it “made sense for me to stay here from a foot­ball stand­point, fi­nan­cial stand­point.”

Kerr spent his first three sea­sons with the In­di­anapo­lis Colts af­ter be­ing signed as a free agent in 2014 out of Delaware.

The Bron­cos have been bol­ster­ing their de­fense this off­sea­son. They re­cently added for­mer Chicago cor­ner­back Bryce Cal­la­han and for­mer Hous­ton hard hit­ter Ka­reem Jack­son.

Fal­cons: Tight end Lo­gan Paulsen agreed to terms with the Fal­cons on Satur­day, ac­cord­ing to the team.

Paulsen will go along with block­ing tight end Luke Stocker, who also signed in free agency.

Paulsen played in 15 games for the Fal­cons last sea­son, in­clud­ing one start. He caught all nine of his tar­gets for 91 yards and one touch­down.

Paulsen didn’t dis­tin­guish him­self as a block­ing tight end, and he was part of the Fal­cons’ run­ning game that ranked 31st in the NFL in runs of no gain or losses.

Paulsen, 32, has played in 120 NFL games and has made 65 starts.
