ENGLEWOOD, Colorado – The Broncos are not done adding competition to good tackling position.
Fleming, a 2014 New England Patriots fourth-round pick, started 42 games during his seven-year NFL career. In 2020, in his only season with the Giants, he started all 16 games with a straight tackle.
Prior to signing with the Giants, Fleming started six games in two years with the Cowboys and appeared in 28 games overall.
In his four seasons in New England to start his career, Fleming started 20 games and appeared in 47.
A 6-foot-6, 320-pounder, Fleming is set to compete for the starting right tackle position that opened up when the Broncos placed Ja’Wuan James on the non-football injury list.
On Wednesday, the Broncos signed a one-year contract with Bobby Massie and added former undrafted free agent Ryan Pope to the roster earlier today. Massie has started 110 games since writing in 2012.
According to reports, Fleming is expected to join Massie, the Pope, starting from left tackle Garett Bolles and Quinn Bailey at tackle from the Broncos’ active roster. Calvin Anderson is also expected to be part of the squad, having been offered as an exclusive rights free agent in March.
The Broncos are set to face Fleming’s former team, the Giants, in Week 1 of the 2021 season.
