The Denver Broncos announced on Tuesday that linebacker Justin Hollins has signed his rookie contract. According to Mike Kils, the fifth-round selection out of Oregon, agreed to a four-year deal with a $300,000 signing bonus.

Hollins played in 52 games while at the University of Oregon – starting 37 during his time with the Ducks. In total, Hollins had 184 tackles (98 solo), 13 sacks and eight forced fumbles in his collegiate career.

In addition to Hollins signing his rookie deal, the Broncos also announced that offensive lineman Nico Falah was placed on Injured Reserve. Falah was active for last December’s loss to the Raiders on Christmas Eve.

Prior to signing with the Broncos in 2018, Falah spent time on the New York Jets practice squad and also had a short stint with the Tennessee Titans. Before that, Falah was a two-year starter at the University of Southern California.
