The Denver Broncos sought out some offensive line help Monday by claiming former Miami Dolphins starting guard Billy Turner off waivers.
Turner, who turned 25 Monday, was cut by the Dolphins after five games and two starts. He was claimed by the Baltimore Ravens and then cut shortly thereafter, opening him up to be claimed by the Broncos.
The 6-foot-5, 302-pound guard has played in 20 games with 14 starts since the Dolphins made him a third-round selection out of North Dakota State in 2014. He started 12 of the 13 games he played last season and filled in this season before he was cut in a mass cleansing of the offensive line in Miami.
The Broncos have seen their offensive production diminish along with their offensive line play the last two weeks. The Atlanta Falcons recorded 6 sacks in a 23-13 upset win two weeks ago, and last Thursday, all five starting linemen were called for penalties in a 21-13 loss to the San Diego Chargers.
Turner is likely a signing for depth, as he hasn’t been able to stick with the other two rosters he’s played for this season.
