The Broncos spent a lot of time this offseason signing players to bolster their defense, but the offense is going to look different as well.
Orlando Franklin started 15 regular season games and all three postseason contests at right tackle, but he spent the first day of the team’s offseason workouts getting a handle on a different position. Franklin tweeted that he’s now at left guard and that he’s “excited to learn and improve” over the remainder of the offseason.
The Broncos had an opening at the spot with Zane Beadles’ departure as a free agent and it seems likely that Chris Clark will take over at right tackle. Clark filled in for Ryan Clady at left tackle last season, but was without a position on the starting line with Clady back from last year’s foot injury.
More changes could come in the draft. The Broncos would probably like to see Franklin win the job rather than get it by default, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see them add an option or two at guard next month.
