The plan is for the Broncos to have Dotson take a physical and get tested.
There is no question the Broncos could use some tackle depth after Ja’Wuan James recently opted out of the 2020 season.
Dotson, 34, signed on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss back in 2011. He was in the final year of his four-year, $7.5 million contract when he agreed to a four-year, $18.25 million contract that includes $8.5 million guaranteed with the Buccaneers back in 2016.
The Buccaneers picked up Dotson’s 2019 option last year and made a base salary of $4.725 million. He has been testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent since March.
In 2019, Dotson appeared in 15 games for the Buccaneers and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 31 offensive tackle out of 82 qualifying players.
