SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah offensive lineman Garett Bolles signed a four-year contract extension with the Denver Broncos.

The Broncos announced Bolles’ new deal on Saturday, November 28.

Instead of becoming a free agent following the 2020 NFL season, Bolles is now tied to Denver through the 2024 season.

“He had a great offseason,” Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said a few days before Bolles’ extension was announced. “He stuck to it, he didn’t let the outside noise, which at times was appropriate, stop his determination to keep improving. I think he’s finally being rewarded for that approach. He was a guy that came out with a limited background and I knew it was going to take him time… I’ve always liked Garett. Him and I talk a lot, and I’m happy for him.”

Bolles’ deal is worth $68 million, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

After struggling with penalties early in his career, Bolles has shown improvement in his game this season.

Pro Football Focus has Bolles rated as the top tackle this season. According to PFF, the former Utah standout has not allowed a sack in 2020.

“I’ve had rocky years here and my goal is just to be a consistent player that [President of Football Operations/General Manager] Mr. [John] Elway and this organization can count on for many years,” Bolles said on November 24. “I want to be here for a long time — I love the city, I love this fan base, my teammates, I love everything about [it] here, and I just want to win.”

Bolles has started 58 games at left tackle since he was taken by Denver with the No. 20 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

This season, the Broncos own a 4-6 record are in third place in the AFC West.

Denver’s next game is against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, November 29 at 2:05 p.m. (MDT). The game will broadcast on FOX.
