ENGLEWOOD, Colorado (AP) — A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press the Denver Broncos have agreed to a two-year free agent deal with former Seattle and Pittsburgh tight end Nick Vannett that's worth $5.7 million.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because NFL teams aren't announcing signings until all the paperwork is filed, a process that's complicated by the coronavirus pandemic that has forced the league to ban all free agents from visiting team facilities.

At 6-foot-6 and 261 pounds, Vannett will be Denver's biggest tight end, and while he's primarily built a reputation as a blocker, he did catch 29 passes for Seattle in 2018 and had a combined 17 receptions for the Seahawks and Steelers last season.
