The Denver Broncos will bring Alex Gibbs back as an offensive line consultant, The Denver Post reports. Gibbs, 72, once served as the team's offensive line coach from 1995 to 2003. The Broncos won two Super Bowls with Gibbs as the offensive line coach. Gibbs' offensive blocking schemes assisted running back Terrell Davis and quarterback John Elway excel in the Broncos offense.

Broncos head coach John Fox said Gibbs would be "a good resource" and believes Gibbs can help the current Broncos offense. Last season, the Broncos brought in quarterback Peyton Manning's former offensive coordinator with the Indianapolis Colts as part of a mandatory minicamp.

The Broncos were 16th in the league in rushing yards and 5th in total passing yards.
