The Denver Broncos officially signed free agent offensive tackle Demar Dotson on Wednesday.

Reports last week said Dotson was visiting the Broncos and expected to sign.

The 34-year-old provides another option at right tackle after starter Ja'Wuan James opted out of the season. Dotson is expected to compete for the starting job with Elijah Wilkinson, who started 12 games in place of an injured James in 2019.

A longtime starter with Tampa Bay, Dotson became a free agent in March after his three-year, $16.5 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers expired. He started 15 games at right tackle in each of the last two seasons and made 106 starts in 130 appearances across 11 years with the Bucs.

In a corresponding move, the Broncos waived defensive lineman Jonathan Harris with a non-football injury designation.

Harris, 24, appeared in five games between stints with the Broncos and Chicago Bears as an undrafted rookie in 2019, making eight tackles.
