2. Denver Broncos
In 2019, the Broncos signed a player that was supposed to be a long-term fix at the right tackle spot, Ja’Wuan James.
James ended up playing just three games in Denver. He was hurt for most of his first season and opted out of his second season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He was training for his third season under contract when he suffered a torn Achilles in an off-site workout.
As a result, the Broncos cut James to avoid paying him his $10 million salary, which wasn’t guaranteed for injury because he was hurt outside of the Denver facility. James is likely to fight to get his money, but regardless, he won’t be playing for the Broncos again.

Denver has added a couple of veterans at the tackle spot in recent days. Bobby Massie and Cameron Fleming are set to compete for the starting job on the right side of the line, but with Moses available, perhaps the Broncos would be interested in adding him to the fray.
Like Massie, Moses is an experienced blocker with 97 starts under his belt. The two would be rock-solid options to replace James and would add depth and competition to the Broncos’ offensive line. Fleming also started most of the season for the Giants in 2020, so they’d have three potential starters on that side of the line.
Is that overkill? Maybe. But you can never have enough depth up front. The Broncos know that after James’ problems staying on the field, so they may be happy to have three experienced tackles on the roster, especially since Massie has missed 14 games the last two seasons due to injuries.
Plus, if the Broncos attempt to trade for Aaron Rodgers — a possibility — they will want to make sure they don’t have any holes on their offensive line. Moses is certainly a serviceable starter, so if they can get him at the right price, the Broncos may well consider it.
