According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Denver Broncos have signed veteran right tackle Demar Dotson formerly of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

This addition was needed after starting right tackle Ja’Wuan James opted out of the 2020 NFL season due to Covid-19 concerns. This left Elijah Wilkinson as the expected starter at right tackle, but now longtime starting right tackle of the Tampa Bay Bucs will now compete for that starting job in the coming training camp practices.

This is a one-year deal worth up to $3 million dollars according to 9NEWS Denver’s Mike Klis so Dotson as I said will now compete for the right tackle job and at the very least, provide depth at the tackle position.

Dotson came in for a visit with the Broncos a few days ago and this addition seemed like only a matter of time before becoming finalized.

So, I like this deal for the Broncos. It gives them a solid veteran who can play right tackle and potentially allow Elijah Wilkinson to push left tackle Garett Bolles for the starting left tackle job during camp. At the very least, it greatly improves the Broncos offensive line depth giving them three tackles with starting experience under their belt.

Update

It’s officially official. The Denver Broncos announced the signing of right tackle Demar Dotson.
