The Denver Broncos are currently the fifth favorite amongst bookmakers to become the 2015 Super Bowl champions.

Today's news though, that the AFC West franchise have upgraded on the offensive side of the ball with the signing of multi-time Pro Bowler Evan Mathis, may see them move up a couple of places.

Done Deal

Mathis, an offensive guard most recently of the Philadelphia Eagles, has signed a one-year contract with the Broncos and the team's front office believes he is ready to have an immediate impact.

John Elway believes that, in signing the two-time Pro Bowler to a $2.5 million base salary with potential to earn $4 million, the Broncos have got themselves a great deal:

"Evan Mathis is an accomplished veteran who has played at a very high level for the last several seasons," Denver's executive vice president of football operations/general manager said in a statement.

"He will immediately make our team better, and we are excited to have him as part of the Denver Broncos."

Mathis has been searching for a new team since his surprise release by the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this offseason following a breakdown in contract negotiations.

Had he stayed on in Philly he would have earned $5.5 million, a figure he turned down from another franchise to sign for Denver, per Adam Schefter.

Experience

Although Mathis is coming of an injury hit 2014, he still made the season finale Pro Bowl and his arrival could be a crucial addition considering the youthful look of Denver's offensive line.

Max Garcia (left guard), Matt Paradis (center) and Ty Sambailo (left tackle) have zero NFL starts between them so adding the experience of Mathis is a big boost at Mile High Stadium, and Peyton Manning in particular.
