Broncos acquire T Jared Veldheer from Cardinals for 6th-round pick

The Broncos have acquired offensive tackle Jared Veldheer from the Cardinals for a sixth-round pick, the teams announced Friday.

According to the Denver Post, the Broncos plan to use Veldheer at right tackle and 2017 first-round pick Garrett Bolles on the left side which means they will move Ron Leary to left guard.

Veldheer was a third-round pick by the Raiders in 2010 out of Hillsdale. He then became a free agent and signed a five-year, $35 million deal with the Cardinals in 2014.

“We can’t anticipate them helping us,” Devin Harris said. “We dug ourselves into this hole; we’ve got to dig ourselves out.”

“We wouldn’t want it any other way,” said Gary Harris, who returned from an 11-game absence with 12 points. “If we win we’re in.”

Nuggets: Can end their playoff drought with a win at Minnesota on Wednesday night.

Logan, 28, will provide defensive line depth and become a top contender to start at nose tackle. The Titans needed more talent at the position following the releases of Karl Klug and Sylvester Williams earlier this offseason.

The move comes after the Titans missed out on signing Ndamukong Suh, who signed with the Los Angeles Rams after visiting Tennessee.

Logan, whose best strength is his run-stuffing ability, will add to a strong Titans run defense that finished fourth in 2017. He ranks ninth among defensive lineman over the last five years with 31 tackles for loss on rushing attempts, according to Stats LLC.

Logan joined the Kansas City Chiefs as an unrestricted free agent last year after four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. He played in 15 games, plus the playoff loss to the Titans, starting in 13 of them.buccaneers_018
