ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos are shuffling their offensive line this offseason and Orlando Franklin provided some insight into their plans Monday by tweeting that he's moving from right tackle to left guard.

"Left guard, excited to learn and improve this offseason. I will give it my all," Franklin wrote on Twitter.

He'd replace Zane Beadles, who left for Jacksonville in free agency.

That apparently means Manny Ramirez would stay at center and Chris Clark, who filled in at left tackle after All-Pro Ryan Clady went on IR with a foot injury in Week 2 last season, will switch sides and play right tackle.

The Broncos' offensive line was dominated by Seattle in the Super Bowl and Peyton Manning was under constant pressure in Denver's 43-8 loss.
