The Denver Broncos continued to bolster their offensive line Friday, agreeing to terms with former Oakland Raiders tackle Menelik Watson.

NFL.com's Ian Rappaport reported that it's a 3-year contract worth $18.3 million.

It's the second consecutive year that the Broncos have added a tackle from an AFC West rival. A year ago, Denver signed Donald Stephenson away from the Kansas City Chiefs.

A second-round pick of the Raiders in 2013, Watson has struggled with injuries during his NFL career. He played in five games in his rookie season and 12 in 2014 before foot and ankle injuries ended his season. An Achilles tendon tear cost him the entire 2015 season. He came back to play in 10 games this past season with six starts, including the Raiders' final two games and their playoff game against Houston.
