Report: Broncos acquire OT Jared Veldheer from the Cardinals

Vincent Frank

The Denver Broncos on Friday solidified their offensive line in front of new starting quarterback Case Keenum. According to this report from Broncos beat writer Mike Klis, Denver has acquired veteran offensive tackle Jared Veldheer from the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Veldheer, 30, has started 101 games — primarily at left tackle — over the course of his eight-year career. In his four seasons with the Cardinals after signing a five-year, $35 million contract, the former Oakland Raiders standout started all 53 games in which he appeared on the left side of the line.

He’ll move to right tackle with second-year star Garett Bolles firmly entrenched in as the Broncos’ starting left tackle.
