Broncos continue to add tackles to compete

The Denver Broncos right tackle situation might actually look better than it did a month ago before the Ja’Wuan James injury.

The Denver Broncos have been busy looking to fill the roster hole - on paper anyway - left by the season-ending and subsequent release of right tackle Ja’Wuan James. They started with the signing of former-Chicago Bears tackle Bobby Massie to a one-year deal a week ago.

Massie, 31, should have the inside track towards starting in 2021. However, the Broncos weren’t done adding depth and competition. On Thursday, they officially signed veteran tackle Cameron Fleming. Fleming, 29, started a full season for the first time in his eight-year NFL career last season for the New York Giants.

In a corresponding move, the team also announced the waiver of quarterback Case Cookus.
