Eagle resident and former University of Idaho football standout Shiloh Keo has been on an emotional roller coaster for three months.

A Super Bowl championship.

A DUI arrest.

And now Monday, when Denver bolstered its defensive backfield by signing the free-agent safety to a one-year contract. Keo was with the Broncos on Monday as the Super Bowl champions went through their first offseason conditioning workouts in Englewood, Colo.

Terms of Keo’s contract were not disclosed.

The Broncos won the Super Bowl on Feb. 7, Denver hosted a parade with approximately 1 million fans Feb. 9, and Keo was arrested and booked into the Ada County Jail on Feb. 13.

If Keo lands a final roster spot with Denver, he could face a possible suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

Keo, 28, played in four regular-season games and two playoff games for the Broncos last season, helping solidify a secondary that was riddled by injuries down the stretch. His recovery of an onside kick sealed Denver’s win over New England in the AFC championship game.
