Five offensive tackles the Denver Broncos could trade for

HOUSTON, TX - NOVEMBER 27: Joey Bosa /

Ty Nsekhe, Washington Redskins

Ty Nsekhe is one of the best kept secrets in the National Football League.

The Washington Redskins have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, and Nsekhe is a major part of it, but he’s not a starter.

The Redskins’ bookend tackles are Trent Williams, an All-Pro, and Morgan Moses, another very good player. Nsekhe is the equivalent to their sixth man, and has proven himself to be a starter-caliber player when on the field.

He gave up one sack in 385 snaps last year, and would certainly be an upgrade for the Broncos at right tackle.

Even better, he costs less than $700,000 this season, and is a restricted free agent after the year is over.

Though he’s 31 years of age, he’s sort of like the Redskins’ Shaquil Barrett, a player who has out-played his contract in a significant way, yet is seemingly always under favorable team control.  Washington has gotten some really good football out of Nsekhe, but there’s a lot still ahead of him and he deserves a chance to start in this league.

He’d likely fetch a 2nd round tender as a restricted free agent, and I can’t imagine the Redskins asking for or accepting less than that for this talented player.
