The former Bear reconnects with Vic Fangio.
Per Source the Denver Broncos have signed outside linebacker Isaiah Irving to the 53 man roster.

This is a move I’ve been expecting since it became obvious Von Miller would be out most if not all of the 2020 season. Both Allbright and Ryan Edwards have mentioned a couple of times that Fangio was open to a reunion. The Broncos showed some interest in veterans Clay Matthews and Cameron Wake, but could not agree to terms. Against the Titans the Broncos chose to bring up rookie 7th rounder Derrek Tuszka.
I suspect the Broncos waited to make the move until after week one because now Irving’s contract will not be guaranteed.
Irving entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of San Jose State. He signed with the Chicago Bears in 2017 and played for two years under Vic Fangio. He has one sack in his NFL career.
