The Denver Broncos will have a new franchise quarterback leading the way in 2022 after they traded for Russell Wilson in early March. Fans will be excited to hear that the front office is making sure he will be properly protected, too. Denver recently signed offensive lineman Billy Turner in free agency.

Broncos Free Agency

Turner has spent the last three seasons with the Green Bay Packers and will now reunite with head coach Nathaniel Hackett in the Mile High city. The 30-year-old pro addresses a major need for the Broncos given 2021 starting right tackle Bobby Massie is no longer under contract with the team.

Keeping Wilson upright and healthy is a top priority moving forward. As long as Turner continues his recent stretch of success, he should have no trouble holding his weight. He has played in 1,694 snaps over the last two seasons (27 starts), allowing only 5 sacks and drawing just 7 penalties.

The duo of Garrett Bolles and Turner patrolling the outside of the O-Line should make it hard for opposing edge rushers to get to Wilson. That is certainly the hope considering the Broncos gave up 40 sacks in the 2021 season, which tied for the 11th-highest mark in the NFL.

Denver's versatility up front will definitely come in handy if anyone goes down with an injury or simply gets off to a rough start. For now, the Broncos will turn their attention toward the upcoming NFL Draft and have odds set at +1500 to win Super Bowl 57, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
