After starring for the Birmingham Stallions in the United Football League, defensive end Dondrea Tillman will sign a three-year, $2.83 million deal with the Broncos, a source told The Denver Post.

The deal will be made official once Tillman passes his physical and gets released from his UFL contract, which is a procedural move.

Tillman will be paid $795,000 in 2024, $960,000 in 2025 and $1.075 million in 2026. His signing bonus of $10,000 is the only guaranteed money.

Tillman, 26, recorded 27 tackles and 3.5 sacks for the Stallions, who defeated the San Antonio Brahmas, 25-0, in the USFL championship game. Tillman had three tackles and a pass break-up, as he helped the Stallions hold San Antonio to 208 total yards.


Before Tillman joined the Stallions, he played Division II football at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where he collected 174 tackles, 30 sacks, 10 passes defended and seven forced fumbles in 48 career games.

This offseason, the Broncos have put an emphasis on fortifying their defensive line. They signed Malcolm Roach and Angelo Blackson before trading for John Franklin-Myers during the NFL draft.
