Lions released DT Justin Bannan.

Bannan, 34, played 29 snaps the first three weeks after being signed in mid-August. The 13-year veteran is nearing the end of the line.

Lions signed DT Justin Bannan, formerly of the Broncos.

Bannan, 34, visited the Lions nearly a month ago. He started 15 games for Denver last season, racking up 42 tackles. Bannan will provide veteran depth.

The Union-Tribune San Diego reports the Chargers remain interested in free agent DT Justin Bannan.

The Bolts were reportedly interested in Bannan last month, but nothing materialized. The 34-year-old is visiting the Lions on Monday. He doesn't pack the stat sheet, but Bannan is quality veteran depth with a knack for tying up blockers. He'd likely see the field more often in San Diego.

Free agent DT Justin Bannan will visit the Lions on Monday.

It will be Bannan's first visit of free agency. The Chargers were reportedly interested in the 34-year-old last month, but nothing came of it. Bannan started 15 games for the Broncos last season, recording 42 tackles.

The Union-Tribune San Diego reports the Chargers are interested in free agent DL Justin Bannan.

The Chargers are searching for veteran depth, and coach Mike McCoy got to see Bannan up close and personal in Denver last season. Heading into his age-34 campaign, Bannan still does a good job of tying up multiple blockers.
Tue, Jun 4, 2013 09:09:00 PM

The Denver Post considers the Broncos more likely to re-sign free agent DT Kevin Vickerson than DT Justin Bannan.

The defensive tackle position in John Fox's 4-3 scheme doesn't get the glamour, but it's a key position. Vickerson, Bannan and Mitch Unrein tied up blockers, thus allowing Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil to wreak havoc. Expect the Broncos to bring back one of their incumbents while also looking to add talent to the position.

Impending free agents DT Justin Bannan and S Jim Leonhard hope to re-sign with the Broncos this offseason.

"This is my home. This is where our family has settled," said the 33-year-old Bannan. "I take a lot of pride in this city." Leonhard, 30, called the Broncos the most talented team he's ever been on. Fellow free agent MLB Keith Brooking hasn't thought about the 2013 season.

Broncos agreed to terms with DT Justin Bannan on a one-year contract.

The Broncos were desperate for a veteran presence up front after losing Brodrick Bunkley to the Saints. Turning 33 next week, Bannan is still an asset as an early-down run stuffer. Denver will still target a defensive line prospect or two in the draft. Bannan's signing allows more flexibility in the first round, however.

Free agent DT Justin Bannan visited the Broncos on Thursday.

Bannan played in Denver under Josh McDaniels two years ago. The Broncos are in need of defensive tackle help with Marcus Thomas weighing offers from three teams and Brodrick Bunkley now in New Orleans.

Rams signed DT Justin Bannan to a three-year contract.

The Denver Post's Mike Klis reports former Broncos HC and current Rams OC Josh McDaniels played a part in luring Bannan to St. Louis. Bannan should be given a chance to start on the inside after tallying 35 tackles, one sack and forced fumble for Denver a season ago. Though Bannan is 32 years old, he remains a quality run stuffer and adds needed size at 6-foot-3, 310.
Sat, Jul 30, 2011 04:04:00 PM

The Rams have begun talks with free agent DT Justin Bannan.

The Rams and Broncos appear to be in on the same defensive tackles. St. Louis isn't considered a serious contender for Brandon Mebane, so Bannan could be a fallback option.
Thu, Jul 28, 2011 04:28:00 PM

The Denver Post reiterates that the Broncos are interested in bringing back free agent DTs Justin Bannan and Jamal Williams at a reduced rate this summer.

Bannan seems to be the top choice, and he would slide in next to Kevin Vickerson as a starter inside. The 32-year-old is also interested in returning to Baltimore, but Denver is easily the more desperate of the two teams.

Free agent DT Justin Bannan would "love" to return to the Ravens in 2011.

"I love Baltimore," said Bannan. "The Ravens organization is family to me. So that's a definite possibility." The Ravens drafted Terrence Cody to replace Bannan last year. He'd have to accept a minor role and less money to return.
Fri, Mar 4, 2011 09:59:00 AM

Broncos released DT Justin Bannan.

Denver's free agent defensive line class of 2010 goes in the books as a monumental bust. Bannan, Jamal Williams, and Jarvis Green combined for just 32 games at $17.25 million total. The Broncos will save $4 million on Bannan after he signed a five-year, $22 million contract a year ago. The 32-year-old will likely catch on with a team running a 3-4 scheme.
