The Denver Broncos signed veteran cornerback Darius Phillips on Thursday.

The 2018 fifth-round pick played the past four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals and was released by the Las Vegas Raiders on Tuesday.

Phillips, 27, had 73 tackles and five interceptions in 47 games (10 starts) for the Bengals. He also returned 30 punts and 25 kickoffs for a combined 854 yards.

The Broncos waived cornerback Essang Bassey in a corresponding move and also signed offensive lineman Will Sherman to the practice squad. He spent most of last season on the practice squad of the New England Patriots.
