Broncos acquire C Gradkowski from Ravens


The Denver Broncos acquired center Gino Gradkowski on Wednesday in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens involving 2016 draft pick considerations.

The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Gradkowski will rejoin Gary Kubiak, who left the Ravens as offensive coordinator after last season to become the Broncos’ head coach. Gradkowski also will be reunited with former Ravens quarterbacks coach Rick Dennison, now the Broncos’ offensive coordinator.

Gradkowski is a fourth-year player who appeared in 40 regular-season games (16 starts) and six playoff contests in three seasons for the Ravens. He was selected by Baltimore in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of the University of Delaware.

Gradkowski started all 16 games at center for Baltimore in 2013 after seeing action in every contest during his 2012 rookie season in which the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII.
