Denver Broncos Nearing Deal With Guard Ben Powers

The Denver Broncos are looking for reinforcements along their offensive line. According to 9News's Mike Klis, the Broncos are approaching a four-year deal with former Baltimore Ravens guard Ben Powers.

Powers started 17 games for the Ravens last season and has appeared in 47 total games for the team since being drafted 123rd overall in 2019. He earned a middling 62.9 overall grade from Pro Football Focus last year.

Powers hasn't been a star so far in his career, but he has experience paving the way in effective rushing attacks and blocking for mobile quarterbacks. The Ravens ranked second in rushing yards last year thanks in large part to the dynamic running ability of quarterback Lamar Jackson.

The Broncos are desperate to make the most of Russell Wilson, and improving their offensive line may be their most direct path. They allowed a league-high 63 sacks last year and finished dead last in points scored in 2022.
