Zane Beadles is the first Broncos free agent to leave Denver in 2014

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The Jaguars have reached a deal with the former Broncos guard, according to a report.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to terms with former Broncos guard Zane Beadlesaccording to ESPN.  It is reportedly a five-year, $30 million deal with $13 million guaranteed.

As Andrew Mason points out, this contract puts the 2012 Pro Bowler above Louis Vasquez's contract, who had a perfect season in Denver in 2013 and was a first-team All Pro.

The Broncos will look to replace their starting left guard by looking into their depth, finding someone in free agency or the draft, or possibly even moving right tackle Orlando Franklin into that left guard spot. Chris Clark would likely swing to right tackle in that case.

Beadles told CBS Denver's Vic Lombardi he will be "sad to go" and that it was a total business decision.

Beadles will do just fine in Jacksonville. He probably won't contend for a Super Bowl, but he has 30 million other reasons to sleep well at night.

Free agency is underway!
