Broncos acquire T Jared Veldheer from Cardinals for 6th-round pick

The Broncos have been trying to shore up their offensive line for the last couple of years.

The Broncos have acquired offensive tackle Jared Veldheer from the Cardinals for a sixth-round pick, the teams announced Friday.

According to the Denver Post, the Broncos plan to use Veldheer at right tackle and 2017 first-round pick Garrett Bolles on the left side which means they will move Ron Leary to left guard.

Veldheer was a third-round pick by the Raiders in 2010 out of Hillsdale. He then became a free agent and signed a five-year, $35 million deal with the Cardinals in 2014.

He has one year left on his current deal.
