3. Cameron Fleming, OT
This isn’t an earth-shattering re-signing by any means, but with how much change the Broncos’ offensive line is expected to face, having an insurance plan at the revolving door of right tackle would be smart.
Cameron Fleming is an average starting tackle, at best. Not insulting Fleming by any means, but there is definitely value to that and there will always be a place for a spot start, and veteran tackles in the NFL. Unfortunately for the Denver Broncos, that is exactly what that position has become.
Along with re-signing Cam Fleming, the Broncos should spend a day two pick on a right tackle to see if they can strike gold as they did on interior offensive lineman Quinn Meinerz.
Like Murray, Fleming should come back on a cheap one-year deal that just provides the Broncos with a solid plan B for the upcoming season. Fleming is a versatile offensive lineman who has played left and right tackle in the NFL which is another plus.
Having someone like Fleming who can flip sides gives you a backup tackle at either position or a low-end starter if you need it. At the same time, if you use this method as a way to save a roster spot for someone else, if Fleming were to go down due to injury, you lose a backup at both tackle spots.
His 2022 season was a reliable one for the Broncos, playing and starting in 15 games. With injuries to Garrett Bolles, Lloyd Cushenberry III, Dalton Risner, and Quinn Meinerz, Fleming was the most familiar face to the group.
If you are wondering where Dre’Mont Jones is in all this, I’m not optimistic a deal gets done between the two parties. It seems there is some animosity between the two, whether it is from the losing or the Bradley Chubb trade, I would not bet on Jones and the Denver Broncos coming to an extension agreement.
Sean Payton could be looking to reunite with former players and execute trades for great players. Here are 5 trades for the Denver Broncos because of Payton
Dre’Mont Jones is a fantastic player and if a deal can be agreed upon, by all means, do it.
