With their latest signing, the Denver Broncos’ locker room is starting to feel more and more like Broad Fieldhouse East.

This week, former Sacramento State offensive tackle Lars Hanson inked a free agent deal with the defending Super Bowl champions. He joins linebacker Todd Davis, quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp, and offensive line coach Clancy Barone among the ranks of mile-high Hornets.

Hanson played four seasons with Sacramento State, starting his last 39 consecutive games at the most important position on the offensive line, left tackle, aka the “blind side.” In 2014, he presided over an offense that set single-season school records in total yards (5,780) and points (458). In 2015, the 6-foot-8, 305-pound captain was an honorable mention All-Big Sky Conference selection.

Signing with Denver, fresh off a 2016 Super Bowl championship victory over the Carolina Panthers, is a dream come true for Hanson: Despite hailing from Southern California, he grew up a lifelong Broncos fan.

Now, he’ll have the chance to toe the line for the team he loves alongside a whole host of familiar faces.
