The Broncos have their first-round pick under contract.

Mike Klis of KUSA reports that the Broncos and tackle Garrett Bolles have agreed to a four-year deal with a team option for a fifth year. Per Klis, the contract is worth a fully guaranteed $11 million-plus with a $6 million signing bonus.

Bolles was the 20th overall pick after playing one season at Utah and a couple of years in junior college after a rocky road through high school. Bolles referenced those struggles while holding his infant son in an emotional interview after being drafted and said he hoped he could be an example to other kids that you can overcome rough patches.

Bolles is ticketed for left tackle with the Broncos, who have now signed four of their eight picks from this year’s draft.

  1. Hope he proves me wrong but I have a hunch Denver reached and will need to add another OT soon. O J Howard shoulda been the target. They had a willing trade partner 2 spots up. They blew it.

  2. Yes sir…..get that contract done so you can focus on one thing. Smashing that guy in front of you. Particularly the ones in silver & black.

  3. Welcome home young man! Happy to have you and am looking forward to seeing what you can do to help improve that unit!!

  4. Don’t be surprised if he lacks the mental make-up for sustained success in the NFL. It’ll be interesting to see how he copes with inevitable disappointment. I’m betting against him; figuring he’ll wash out of the league before his contract is up for renewal.
