ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos will have a new starting right tackle in 2019.
Denver has agreed to terms on a four-year deal with former Miami offensive lineman Ja'Wuan James, the team announced Wednesday.
A first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, James has started each of the 62 games in which he's appeared during his five-year career.
During his previous two seasons in Miami, he worked with the Broncos' Assistant Offensive Line Coach Chris Kuper, who held the same role in Miami.
James was called for the fewest penalties of his career in 2018.
In Denver, James will be coached by Kuper and Offensive Line Coach Mike Munchak. The two coaches will aim to help James provide stability at a position that has seen consistent change over the past few years. Denver has featured a different starter at right tackle to begin each of the last four seasons.
James, who started 15 games in 2018, is 26 years old and was a member of the 2014 NFL All-Rookie Team.
