DENVER -- The Denver Broncos signed defensive end Courtney Brown to a contract extension through the 2009 season on Tuesday.

Brown, 28, joined Denver as a free agent last year after five seasons with the Cleveland Browns.

With Denver, he had 38 tackles, 30 of them solo, with two sacks, two fumble recoveries and one pass breakup in 13 regular-season starts.

In 61 career games, he has 264 tackles (184 solo), 19 sacks and 22 pass breakups. He has six forced fumbles, seven fumble recoveries and one blocked field goal.

"Courtney came to our team last season and helped solidify a defensive front that clearly became a strength of our football team," Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist said. "He proved to be an outstanding addition to the Broncos both on and off the field, and I'm excited that he will continue to be a key component of our defense and help us accomplish our goal of winning another World Championship."
