According to 9NEWS' Mike Klis, Gotsis' four-year deal has a total value of $3.9 million, with a signing bonus of $1,063,928
Three days into Phase Three of the Broncos Offseason Training Program, Gotsis has been restricted to the classroom, and taking mental reps from the sideline, while he recovers from a torn ACL suffered late last season.
The goal is to get Gotsis healthy in time for training camp, if his recovery goes as planned. At 6-foot-4 and 287 pounds, He comes to the Broncos as a relatively raw player.
He's only been playing American football for a few short years. But, under the tutelage of the best defensive line coach in the National Football League, Bill Kollar, I expect Gotsis to contribute on defense much sooner than many might think.
Although he's not the most gifted athlete from an explosion, or quick-twitch perspective, he's tough, has a high motor, and can dominate at the point of attack at times.
Learning at the feet of Kollar will help him develop the techniques that will allow him to flourish at the pro level. Broncos fans will just have to wait a little bit longer to see his debut.
The Broncos have now signed 7-of-8 2016 draft picks. First-round QB Paxton Lynch is all that remains.
