The Broncos have made their first large splash of the new NFL year by adding a new piece to their offensive line.
Offensive Guard Louis Vasquez has signed a 4 year, $23.5 million dollar deal to play for Denver.
Vasquez, 25 yeards old, is entering his fifth NFL season. The previous four were spent as a starter for the San Diego Chargers. Vasquez was a 2009 third round pick. In his time with San Diego, he committed only one penalty, which came in his rookie year. He has never missed a game in four years.
John Elway tweeted
"We've agreed to terms on a contract with guard Louis Vasquez. He is a big powerful player who adds a physical presence to our OL."
According to Pro Football Focus, Vasquez only gave up 22 quarterback disruptions last season.
Vasquez will for sure be a starter, but that makes someone the odd man out. Broncos right guard Chris Kuper has struggled with injury and would be making $4.5 million next year so stay tuned to see what the Broncos do at the offensive line.
