Broncos, Briefly: Saturday, March 11, 2017

Posted Mar 11, 2017

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Denver Broncos.

The Broncos believe they left a Super Bowl opportunity on the table in 2016 largely because, week after week, the offense couldn’t run the ball or protect the quarterback well enough. And they went in search of some toughness, some proven performance, and an infusion of an “it" factor on the offensive line.

Minutes after he introduced Ron Leary as Denver’s new free-agency prize Friday afternoon, Broncos general manager John Elway headed back upstairs at the team’s headquarters to finalize another addition to his offensive line. He was close, but not quite ready to show off his latest 300-pound catch.

“Nah, I’m definitely not a recruiter. I’m not getting caught up in that at all,” said Leary at a news conference Friday at Dove Valley. “Tony’s a great guy. He was a great teammate with me in Dallas, but I’m in Denver now. We have two great young quarterbacks in Trevor (Siemian) and Paxton (Lynch). I watched them last year, they’re getting better. They’re young and have bright futures.”

Broncos keep focus on OL in free agency, add Watson (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
The Denver Broncos continued their big-guy approach in free agency Friday as Menelik Watson became the second offensive linemen to come to terms with the Broncos in the first two days of free agency.

In the first 24 hours of free agency Elway plucked two nasty-streak players from two of the top offensive lines in the league. He signed former Cowboys guard Ron Leary for $35 million over four years and former Raiders tackle Menelik Watson for $18 million over three years.
