Jets placed DL Kevin Vickerson on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

Vickerson is just a situational run stopper, but the Jets could have used him as depth while Sheldon Richardson serves his four-game suspension. Now 32, Vickerson played only 175 for the Chiefs in 2015. He could eventually get cut loose with an injury settlement.

Jets signed DL Kevin Vickerson to a one-year contract.

A situational run stopper, Vickerson appeared in 15 games (175 snaps) with Kansas City last year. He'll provide a veteran option behind Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson. With the Jets expected to be multiple under HC Todd Bowles, Vickerson should also see snaps on the interior line.

Chiefs signed DL Kevin Vickerson.

Vickerson was rumored to be heading to the Bengals last week after he was released by the Broncos at final cuts, but he instead picks the Chiefs. Kansas City lost LE Mike DeVito to a torn Achilles' in Week 1, leaving a mammoth hole next to NT Dontari Poe. Vickerson has the size to play in a 3-4 defense at 6'5/328.

Bengals agreed to terms with DL Kevin Vickerson.

Vickerson broke the news on his Instagram account. Battling a hip injury, Vickerson was released by the Broncos at final cuts. He'll provide interior-line depth for a team getting back DT Geno Atkins (knee).
Tue, Sep 2, 2014 03:00:00 PM

The Chargers are showing interest in free agent DL Kevin Vickerson.

San Diego could use interior defensive line depth after losing Kwame Geathers and Damik Scafe to I.R. Vickerson would play end in the Chargers' 3-4.

Broncos released DT Kevin Vickerson.

The 31-year-old Vickerson got his hip healthy in time to play in the final two preseason games, but it wasn't enough. Marvin Austin and Mitch Unrein are now the primary candidates to back up Terrance Knighton and Sylvester Williams. The Broncos save $2 million by dumping Vickerson.

Broncos DT Kevin Vickerson (hip) is questionable for the start of training camp.

Vickerson has been slow to recover from his hip injury and is sitting out OTAs. He doesn't have a timetable to resume football activities, but his Week 1 status isn't in doubt. Vickerson started 11 games prior to going down last year and will return in a rotation with Terrance Knighton and Sylvester Williams.
Fri, Jun 13, 2014 05:48:00 PM

Broncos DT Kevin Vickerson (hip) said he "should be" ready for OTAs.

Vickerson dislocated his hip after starting the first 11 games of this past season. He's a valuable run-stopping cog in the middle of the Broncos' defensive line and has one year left on his contract. Vickerson should be back to rotate with Terrance Knighton and Sylvester Williams at defensive tackle.

Broncos will place DT Kevin Vickerson (hip) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The Broncos can't afford to wait on Vickerson in the hopes his dislocated hip will heal in time for the playoffs. Instead, they'll use Sylvester Williams and Mitch Unrein next to Terrance Knighton and sign a body for defensive tackle depth. Vickerson will head to free agency with 22 tackles and one sack in 11 games. He graded out as ProFootballFocus' No. 61 nose/defensive tackle among 70 qualifiers.

Broncos DT Kevin Vickerson (hip) is out a minimum of six weeks.

Vickerson won't need surgery to repair the joint he dislocated in Sunday night's Week 12 loss at New England, but his season is still in jeopardy. It's a loss the Broncos should be able to overcome. Vickerson has graded out 61st among 70 qualifying nose/defensive tackles according to ProFootballFocus. He has 22 tackles and one sack through 11 games. Terrance Knighton, Malik Jackson, Sylvester Williams, and Mitch Unrein are going to have to pick up the slack.
Tue, Nov 26, 2013 08:02:00 AM

Broncos re-signed DT Kevin Vickerson to a two-year contract.

Already thin in the interior of their defensive line, the Broncos made bringing back Vickerson a priority. He's coming off a solid, 40-tackle, two-sack campaign as a starter next to Justin Bannan. Ideally, the Broncos would reduce Vickerson's 2013 snaps. They're looking into acquiring Terrance Knighton.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 08:13:00 PM

The Broncos are working to re-sign free agents DT Kevin Vickerson and S David Bruton.

Vickerson received the most extensive playing time of his career in 2012, and he responded with 40 tackles and two sacks as a stout run defender in the middle. Denver is paper thin at defensive tackle right now, and re-signing Vickerson is likely a priority. Bruton is a core special-teamer.
Sat, Mar 9, 2013 01:45:00 PM

Broncos DT Kevin Vickerson weighed in at 324 pounds during OTAs.

Vickerson felt "too light" playing last season at 275 pounds and "couldn't anchor down at the point of attack." With Brodrick Bunkley and Marcus Thomas lost to free agency, Vickerson and DT Justin Bannan are working with the Broncos' first-team defense at OTAs. Vickerson, who took a pay cut this offseason, is projected as a rotational tackle behind Derek Wolfe and Ty Warren.

Broncos DT Kevin Vickerson reportedly accepted a paycut to remain with the team for the 2012 season.

Vickerson's $400,000 roster bonus was eliminated and his base salary reduced from $2 million to $1.2 million. The 29-year-old is slated for another season as a rotational tackle for coach John Fox's defense.
