Former Oklahoma linebacker Corey Nelson is receiving high praise from Denver Broncos’ head coach Vic Fangio days after being signed to the team's 53-man roster.

Nelson, who was cut by Tampa Bay Buccaneers, joined the Broncos last week “has done extremely well,” Fangio told Zac Stevens, BSN Broncos beat writer.

Nelson “has done a very good job mentally learning the system and applying it out in practice. No complaints,” Fangio said.

Since suffering a torn bicep in 2017, Nelson has had brief stints with Philadelphia Eagles, Atlanta Falcons and the Buccaneers.

While at Oklahoma, Nelson had 153 tackles in four years earning honorable mention All-Big 12 and Academic All-Big 12.

The fifth year league veteran has a career total of 106 tackles and one sack.
