The Denver Broncos’ starting right tackle position appears to be down to promising young player Calvin Anderson as well as veteran Bobby Massie. Vic Fangio has, however, on multiple occasions singled out former undrafted free agent Quinn Bailey as another guy the team likes to possibly take that role.

If nothing else, Bailey has a shot to potentially be a swing tackle for the Denver Broncos this season after really working his way up as an unheralded longshot in 2019.

There’s no question about the impact of offensive line coach Mike Munchak and what he’s done with some of the more prominent players on this Denver Broncos roster, but there are also a number of guys like Quinn Bailey who have been around since Munchak was hired that are worth keeping close tabs on.

When the second and third offensive units come out onto the field, Bailey will be expected to dominate given he has been included in the conversation as the starting right tackle.

If he can string together some good practices and have a good game against the Minnesota Vikings, perhaps his role going forward and opportunities in that right tackle spot will increase.

The former Arizona State standout has certainly paid his dues and even got a little taste of regular season action last season in Las Vegas. He needs a big preseason and could shock everyone and come for that right tackle spot.
