The Denver Broncos have secured their center as the team has agreed to re-sign 2014 sixth round draft pick Matt Paradis. The offensive line gets a returning player. They have also cut ties with tight end Nick Kasa on a non-injury designation.
With as much trouble as the offensive line had for the majority of the season, it was glad to see Matt Paradis be a bright spot. Now the Denver Broncos will have their starting center returning in 2016.
The Denver Broncos have resigned center Matt Paradis. He signed his exclusive rights tender on Thursday.
It was also announced that the Broncos have cut ties with tight end Nick Kasa, placing him on the non-football injury designation. He was signed by the team shortly after the 2015 AFC Championship Game victory.
Paradis started all 16 games during the 2015 season, allowing only two sacks. He would be an unsung hero in the playoffs, not allowing Peyton Manning to get rocked by a defender he was blocking in each of the three playoff games.
I like the fact that the team brought back Paradis. One of the Denver Broncos’ biggest focuses in this offseason is to make the offensive line better. Having him with Russell Okung, Max Garcia, and Ty Sambrailo to name a few will make this offensive line pretty stout.
As for Nick Kasa, the move is not that surprising, seeing as how Virgil Green and Jeff Heuerman lead the tight end position for the Denver Broncos going into the 2016 training camp.
Great to see Matt Paradis returning to the Denver Broncos. But I would have been surprised if he did not. The team wants to make sure that they hold on to all the key pieces of the offensive line, and Paradis makes the unit a solid one.
