Ex-Redskin Montgomery Signs With Broncos
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBSDC/AP) — The Denver Broncos have agreed to terms with former Washington Redskins center Will Montgomery on a 1-year deal.
Montgomery, a ninth-year pro, was released by the Redskins last month after playing the last five seasons in the nation’s capital. He was drafted by Carolina in 2006 out of Virginia Tech when Broncos coach John Fox was Panthers coach. He also played for the Jets from 2007-08.
During his career, Montgomery has started 46 games at center, 10 at right guard and seven at left guard.
The Broncos are shuffling their offensive line this offseason. They allowed left guard Zane Beadles to leave for Jacksonville in free agency and might move center Manny Ramirez over to make room for Montgomery. They also could move right tackle Orlando Franklin inside.
