Broncos Add First Free Agent

Posted Mar 12, 2013

On the first day of the free agency period, the Broncos agreed to terms with guard Louis Vasquez.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos didn't wait long to make a splash on the first day of free agency, agreeing to terms with guard Louis Vasquez less than an hour into the new league year.

Vasquez, originally a 2009 third-round pick by the Chargers, played his first four NFL seasons in San Diego.

During that time, he committed only one penalty, which came in his rookie season. He has started all 54 games he has played and graded out as Pro Football Focus' 13th-best guard of the 2012 season.

Pro Football Focus also noted that Vasquez gave up only 22 quarterback disruptions on 584 pass blocking snaps as the Chargers' "best offensive lineman" last season.

"We've agreed to terms on a contract with guard Louis Vasquez," Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway announced on Twitter. "He is a big, powerful player who adds a physical presence to our OL."

Vasquez is 25 years old entering his fifth NFL season.
