Could the Broncos be adding some Sweezy to their offensive line?

Are the Broncos not done adding to the offensive line through free agency?

According to NFL Networks Rand Getlin, the Denver broncos one intriguing team to pay attention to for Sweezy's services.

Sweezy would be an excellent fit in Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking offense. He is a highly athletic mauler who has some wrestling experience which really helps in the trenches.

He also fits because the Broncos do have a need at the guard position. They just released veteran Louis Vasquez on Tuesday, and Evan Mathis is currently a free agent and mulling his future in the NFL. Sweezy could step in and start at guard for the Broncos.

Sweezy has played in a total of 59 career NFL games with the Seattle Seahawks and has 49 career starts under his belt. He has started at least 15 games for the Seattle Seahawks the last three seasons.

If the interest in Sweezy is legit, it will be interesting to see how this offensive line shakes out. After signing offensive tackle Donald Stephenson, the Broncos seemed just about set at the offensive line position. Adding Sweezy would make the position a little more jumbled heading into the spring.

The market for Sweezy seems pretty competitive, and the deal the Oakland Raiders gave Kelechi Osemele reset the free agent market. Ultimately I think the price tag could get too high for the Broncos, but you never know with General John Elway.
