(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images) The Denver Broncos on Thursday announced the signing of free agent defensive end Jason Hunter, who has spent the past two seasons in Denver.  A rotational defensive end, Hunter has also played as an outside linebacker during his tenure with Denver. Hunter, 28, is entering his seventh season in the NFL.  After joining the league with the Green Bay Packers in 2006, Hunter would go on to have a brief stint in Detroit before joining the Broncos during the 2010 off-season. A versatile player, Hunter has played in 88 games (23 starts) and has recorded 148 tackles, 11 sacks, defended 6 passes, intercepted a pass, forced three fumbles and has recovered six fumbles.  Needless to say, he’s done it all. Hunter (6-4, 271 pounds) gives the team four defensive ends on the roster joining Elvis Dumervil (5-11, 260 pounds), Robert Ayers (6-3, 274 pounds) and Jeremy Beal (6-2, 276 pounds).  Denver carried five defensive ends on the roster last season. Hunter is a solid signing to add depth to the defensive end position.  Now the team needs to focus on bringing in a defensive tackle.
