Positions the Broncos must address in offseason By Zac Stevens

According to the NFL Network, the deal is worth $35 million with $20 million guaranteed. Me and Garcia we weren't talking about playing left or right.

And while Leary is in the spotlight as the Broncos' first free-agent addition of 2017, he's only part of the potential solution up front - and he knows it.

Watson, who grew up in Manchester, England, and played basketball at Marist College before picking up football in 2011, was drafted by Oakland in 2013, but his career has been marked by injuries.

Leary said that he "didn't talk too much" about the scheme with Offensive Line Coach Jeff Davidson, adding that their meeting was more about making Leary comfortable on his new team. So the Broncos might be making a few calls to see if any left tackle or right tackles are available on the trade market.

Leary leaves Dallas, where he formerly was a Cowboys teammate of quarterback Tony Romo.

"I take more enjoyment blocking for the run".

The Denver Broncos have signed a former Dallas Cowboys player in free agency. "I'm not getting caught up in that at all", said Leary at a news conference Friday at Dove Valley.

Leary also demurred when asked if he thought Romo might retire rather than play outside Dallas. "It's big guy on big guy, who is going to come out hard, who is going to hit him first in the mouth. I just love to play football".

Leary, 27, has been a staple in the Cowboys offensive line the past four years. After excelling both protecting Dak Prescott and opening holes for Ezekiel Elliott last season, he hopes to bring some of what made the unit in Dallas so good, with him to Denver. Meanwhile, the Broncos need a great deal of help there ... to protect Romo or whomever wins the Denver quarterback job.

In his 13 games last season with the Cowboys, Leary didn't allow a single sack all season.
