Broncos lose backup guard Netane Muti to a division rival

Read Time:1 Minute, 11 Second

One of the top offensive linemen for the Denver Broncos has been traded to a division rival.

The Las Vegas Raiders are signing guard Netane Muti off Denver’s practice squad to their active roster, according to a report from KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis.

It’s a surprising development because Denver does not have much depth on the offensive line and the Broncos could have promoted Muti to their own 53-man roster to prevent the Raiders from signing him.

After Graham Glasgow moved from guard to center as an injury fill-in, Muti was left as one of the team’s top remaining reserve guards behind regular starters Dalton Risner and Quinn Meinerz.

Muti took 28 snaps against Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, replacing Risner who was injured. He also started four games in his Bronco career.

Muti, 6-3, 315lbs, fell to Denver in sixth round of 2020 NFL draft from Fresno State. Muti’s college film was extremely impressiveHowever, he was unable to attend college because of injuries that harmed his stock. Muti made waves before the draft. bench-pressed 225 pounds 44 times.

Muti did not make the Broncos’ initial 53-man roster in September, which perhaps was an early sign that Denver’s front office does not rate the guard quite as highly as some Broncos fans.
