The Denver Broncos tackle position got a little thin when Ja’Wuan James decided to opt out of the 2020 season. Denver has Elijah Wilkinson projected to fill that right tackle role opposite Garett Bolles on the left side, but there is little depth and competition. That is definitely a concern.
According to Mike Klis, the Broncos are already looking to at bringing in a body to help shore up the tackle positions. Demar Dotson has been a long-time starting right tackle for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and could end up being that guy for Denver this season.
Broncos bringing in former TBay starting RT Demar Dotson for visit, sources tell 9News. Dotson must first go through COVID-19 testing, then physical.
If all works out, Dotson would add OT depth to Bolles/Wilkinson after Ja’Wuan James opt-out. Elway knows how to audible. #9sports

Dotson, 34, is an eleven year veteran after going undrafted in 2009. He won the starting job in Tampa in 2012 and has held it ever since. In recent years, he has continued to grade out respectably by Pro Football Focus. There isn’t much else to go on unless we start diving into his game play. It would seem his age and cap is how he ended up moving on from Tampa this offseason.
If Dotson can come in and perform at a similar level to last season, I think he could win the starting job from Wilkinson if signed. It would at least be good competition for the right tackle spot.
Should the Broncos sign RT Demar Dotson?
