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.
