Broncos sign free agent guard Louis Vasquez

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - The Denver Broncos on Tuesday agreed to terms with free-agent offensive guard Louis Vasquez, Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway announced.

Vasquez is a fifth-year player who started all 54 regular-season games played for San Diego during his first four NFL seasons. According to STATS Inc., he has allowed just 11 sacks and one penalty during his career while playing for an offense that ranked fourth in the league in points per game (25.8) during that span.

He opened all 16 games for the Chargers in 2012 as one of only two San Diego offensive linemen to start every contest. From 2010-11, Vasquez solidified an offensive line that helped the team rank third in the NFL in total offense (394.3 ypg).

Selected by the Chargers in the third round (78thoverall) of the 2009 NFL Draft from Texas Tech University, Vasquez started 14 games during his first professional season and was named to the PFW/PFWA All-Rookie Team.

Louis (pronounced LEW-iss) Vasquez attended Corsicana (Texas) High School and was born on April 11, 1987.
