​The ​Denver Broncos have a lot of work to do in order to get back to relevance in the AFC West. And in order to make sure new quarterback Joe Flacco has the protection he needs at Mile High, the team is reportedly bringing in right tackle Ja'Wuan James, formerly of the Miami Dolphins, on a four-year deal worth a maximum of $52 million

As Adam Schefter writes, $32 million is guaranteed. That's no small payday for the big man.

James, who was drafted 19th overall in the 2014 ​NFL Draft by the ​Dolphins, spent the first five seasons of his career in Miami before hitting the open market. The 6-6, 318-pounder started 15 games last season, and will now reap his reward in Denver.

John Elway may not have much time left running the front office in Denver. He needs to get things turned around this year. That all starts with having a solid foundation up front, and though it costs the team a significant sum, James has proven to be a reliable operator on the right edge.
