Justin Edmonds

The Denver Broncos announced on Tuesday that it had signed former Michigan offensive lineman Michael Schofield to a four-year rookie deal.

With OTAs underway in NFL camps, one Wolverine in particular can rest easy knowing he has one less hill to climb after being drafted.

The Denver Broncos announced that it had signed former Michigan offensive lineman Michael Schofield to a four-year rookie contract on Tuesday. Schofield was selected in the third round of the NFL Draft.

Although terms of the deal were not released, Schofield's contract is worth around $2.79 million dollars according to Spotrac.com. With rookie deals, the only guaranteed salary is the signing bonus which would amount to $521,000 for Schofield.

Broncos General Manager, John Elway, spoke highly of Schofield after he was selected.

"It gives us a lot of different options," said Elway. "With his versatility he’ll start at tackle and move inside and play some guard also."

Maize n Brew's Adam Biggers also touched on the chances that Schofield could crack the starting rotation in 2014.

Schofield appeared in 52 games during his Michigan career and made 36 starts.
