Denver, CO (Sports Network) - The Denver Broncos agreed to terms with middle linebacker Al Wilson on a new contract Tuesday.
Wilson, the team's defensive captain, led the team in tackles for the second year in a row in 2003 with 128, anchoring Denver's fourth-ranked defense that allowed 277.1 yards per game.
The three-time All-Pro was drafted 31st overall in the 1999 NFL Draft out of the University of Tennessee, just three months after the Broncos' second of back-to-back Super Bowl victories. He stepped into the starting lineup in Week 3 of his rookie season after incumbent John Mobley tore his right ACL, and has started all but five games since.
For his career, Wilson has amassed 647 tackles with 15 sacks and three interceptions. He also has 30 passes defensed, four forced fumbles, and six recoveries.
