Broncos add cornerback Law

During a season in which Jeremiah Trotter, Junior Seau and Ahman Green each unexpectedly returned to football, cornerback Ty Law now will do the same.

Law, a five-time Pro Bowl player, has signed a contract with the Broncos that will add another former Patriot to Josh McDaniels' stable of them in Denver.

Law was expected to play Monday night versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has had some legendary battles with Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward.

When the Jets signed him early in a week last year, Law suited up days later and participated in more than 50 plays covering Randy Moss.

Law signed a one-year, $800,000 deal with Denver that includes a $200,000 signing bonus. He could earn up to $400,000 in play-time and performance incentives.

He had wanted to return to football again and will now have the chance. Law, Brian Dawkins and Champ Bailey will give Denver arguably the most decorated defensive secondary in the league.

The Broncos waived cornerback Jack Williams to make room for Law on the roster.
