The Broncos are taking steps to protect Tony Romo with a familiar face, before they’re even allowed to pursue Tony Romo officially.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Broncos are signing former Cowboys guard Ronald Leary (#barringalatesnag).

Leary was a solid starter for the Cowboys, but was covered up when they acquired La’El Collins, and was looking to reclaim a starting job somewhere.

He stepped back into the lineup when Collins was injured last year, and has been a steady contributor to one of the best lines in the league.

Now, he’s being recognized for it, and would be a valuable piece as the Broncos look to bring in a quarterback who needs to be protected.

UPDATE 12:37 p.m. ET: Mike Klis of KUSA says it’s a four-year deal worth $8.5 million a year, with a guarantee approaching $20 million.

  1. Another one is gone Spielman. What’s going on?? Are you waiting for KMart to open it’s OL department up this afternoon??

  2. Leary is a great run blocker but does get beat in pass protection at times, but very solid player overall and better professional. Hate to see him leave but can’t pay everyone on the line this year with Zach Martin due up.

  3. Leary is great, they all knew he would be good pre-draft. The reason the Cowboys got him undrafted is his degenerative knee condition.

    He will be a good player until he can’t play. No one knows when that will be.

  4. Leary is a very good player who was often overlooked because of the 3 Pro Bowlers on the Cowboys line. He’s gonna be missed in Dallas, but congrats on the big contract, you earned it.
