As the Broncos prepare for their home opener against the Bears, they’ve added a blocker to the outer portion of their offensive line.

Tackle Jake Rodgers has been promoted from the practice squad. To create a roster spot for Rodgers, center/guard Corey Levin was waived.

Levin arrived via waivers on September 1, after being released by the Titans. Rodgers, a seventh-round pick of the Falcons in 2015, was waived by the Broncos on September 1 and later signed to the practice squad.

Rodgers has been employed at one time or another by the Falcons, Giants, Panthers, Steelers, Chargers, Texans, and Ravens. He’s had three stints with the Steelers, the team from which current Denver offensive line coach Mike Munchak arrived in January.

Through it all, Rodgers has yet to play in a regular-season game. That could change tomorrow, especially with tackle Ja'Wuan James out due to a knee injury.

  1. If Rodgers is getting promoted then things must not be looking too good for RT Ja’Wuan James. If James is on the bench for the next few weeks that is a big blow to an already struggling offensive line. Making injury prone J. James the highest paid RT in football was a bad signing from the jump, he’s always dealing with some sort of an injury and isn’t near good enough to be making the kind of money he does. James is an average at best RT. The Broncos need to rebuild almost the entire OL basically, Ronald Leary needs to go, LT G. Bolles needs to go. The only two i’d keep on that line are LG Dalton Risner and Center Connor McGovern, and they’re pretty much stuck with JaWuan James for now at RT. Broncos are going to have another top 10 pick this year, they need to draft a LT in next years draft and then either sign a F/A RG or draft one in the mid rounds of next years draft.
