The Broncos made a bunch of splashy moves on defense to open free agency and they’ve now added wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to their talented receiving corps, which leaves the interior of the offensive line next up on the list in Denver.
Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that the team will host former Redskins center Will Montgomery this week. Montgomery started every game for the Redskins over the last three years, but was released last Friday to save the team some money under the cap.
The Broncos started Manny Ramirez at center last season after Dan Koppen was lost for the year and J.D. Walton failed to make it back from an ankle injury, but the team has an opening at guard after Zane Beadles left for Jacksonville. Klis suggests Ramirez will move to left guard if Montgomery is signed, although Montgomery has also played some guard over the course of his eight-year career in the NFL.
The first six games of that career came with the Panthers in 2006, when Carolina was coached by current Broncos head coach John Fox.
