Former Patriots center Dan Koppen signed an undisclosed contract with the Denver Broncos on Thursday.
Koppen played the first nine seasons of his career in New England, missing just 8 games between his rookie season in 2003 and Week 1 of the 2011 season, when he fractured his ankle against the Miami Dolphins. He won Super Bowls in his first two seasons.
After being cut by the Pats in 2012, he signed with Denver, where he started 12 games and appeared in 15 for the Broncos, who finished with the best record in the AFC at 13-3.
So after lining up in front of Tom Brady for the first 9 years of his career, Koppen could ride off into the sunset being Peyton Manning’s personal snapper. Not a bad item for the resume.
