Former Broncos corner-back Bradley Roby told 9News at Denver that he plans to sign a yearlong, $10 million contract with the Houston Texans.

He told 9News that he turned down a tenth offer in the Pittsburgh Steelers along with a one-piece deal with the sanfrancisco 49ers.

“It’s a prove-it deal,” he told 9News. “I feel as though that I should go back in [the market] while I am still young.”

He will replace corner-back Kevin Johnson,” who had been released by the team and signed up with the Buffalo Bills this past week. The Texans also will reduce safety/cornerback Kareem Jackson, who plans to sign that a three dimensional contract with the Broncos.

Even the 26-year-old Roby, a key rotational part in the Broncos'”No Fly Zone” secondary to his first 4 seasons in the league, watched his opportunity as a rookie unravel a bit last season.

His 50 tackles this past season will be the second-highest total of his livelihood, however, Roby battled consistency problems for much of the season. The summit of these difficulties may have can be found in weekly 5 loss when three ny Jets touchdowns — 2 passing, one racing — came chiefly at the expense of Roby, a first-round pick (31st overall) in 2014.

The Broncos consistently treated Roby like he was a starter in the nickel and dime bundles within his first 4 seasons with the team. The team thought so much of his work it exchanged Aqib Talib before the 2018 season, thinking Roby was willing to begin at TA-Lib’s spot opposite Chris Harris Jr.

Roby played better in the 2nd half of the 2018 season, but his campaign was publicly questioned by then- analyst Jason Witten at the final minutes of a Christmas Eve Monday night loss to the Oakland Raiders.

After having a Raiders running play, Witten designated Roby on a playoff, stating”there is a constant quit in the ,” and included that trainer should pull Roby out of the game. Both Roby and Joseph contested the characterization.

“For him to describe me as a quitter, stopping on my team, I feel as that’s the very crucial thing you can say at a group game,” Roby said at the time.” … It had been really a blunder. I thought the play was over; I had been incorrect. But for him to say that, it just made me mad.”

Roby has received achievements and moments at his youthful career that many employees executives say show a great deal of potential.
