PJ Mustipher Signs With Denver Broncos As Undrafted Free Agent

The big man in the middle has found a new home.

Former Penn State defensive tackle PJ Mustipher is on his way to the NFL after inking an undrafted free agent deal with the Denver Broncos. Mustipher went undrafted during the 2023 NFL Draft.

Mustipher was a two-time second-team All-Big Ten recipient by the coaches and appeared in over 50 games for Penn State. He arrived on campus back in 2018 as a four-star recruit and appeared in all 12 regular season games during his true freshman season.

Over the next two seasons, Mustipher appeared in every single game for the Nittany Lions and was a full-time starter during the 2020 season.

In 2021, Mustipher was voted a team captain for the first time in his career, but suffered an injury in the Iowa game that kept him out for the rest of the season. As a result, he opted to return to Happy Valley for the 2022 season and helped lead the team to an 11-2 record and a Rose Bowl win.

Over his five seasons on the team, Mustipher totaled 144 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, and three sacks.

Mustipher will join former Penn State teammate KJ Hamler in Denver. The Nittany Lion will begin his career under Super Bowl-winning head coach Sean Payton and defensive coordinator Vance Joseph.
