The Broncos have reportedly inked a one-year contract with offensive tackle Matt Peart, a move that could solidify their depth at the position for the upcoming season. According to Mike Klis of 9NEWS Denver, Peart, formerly of the New York Giants, will join the Broncos roster. Standing at 6 feet 7 inches and weighing 315 pounds, Peart was selected by the Giants in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft. During his four-year tenure with the Giants, Peart appeared in 43 games, including seven starts. Last season, he played in eight games and started one.

Broncos sign OT Matt Peart to one-year deal

While Peart demonstrated potential during his time with the Giants, his opportunities dwindled as time went on. With Garett Bolles and Mike McGlinchey solidifying their roles as starters, Peart will vie with Alex Palczewski for the swing tackle position this offseason.

With Peart secured and Palczewski being a favored option among team coaches last season, the Broncos may opt to forgo drafting an offensive tackle this year. Peart brings veteran experience to the swing tackle role, while Palczewski serves as a developmental prospect. This decision could potentially remove the need for the Broncos to select a tackle in the first two days of the draft, although they may consider a developmental prospect on day three if they find a suitable candidate.

The Broncos’ tackle roster now includes Garett Bolles, Mike McGlinchey, Matt Peart, along with undrafted free agents from 2023, Alex Palczewski and Demontrey Jacobs. The question arises whether the Broncos should draft another tackle to bolster competition within this group or proceed with the current roster into the upcoming season.
