Why Julius Thomas Should Be a Starter Next Ye
Third-year TE Could Make Huge Impact for Broncos
COMMENTARY | In recent years, the position of tight end in the NFL has undergone a drastic makeover. No longer is a tight end simply an extension of the offensive line or a slightly larger target for the quarterback to check down for a quick completion. Tight ends like Tony Gonzalez and Antonio Gates began a positional renaissance over a decade ago and with the emergence of athletes like Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Vernon Davis, and others around the league, tight ends now provide offenses with enormous coverage mismatches nearly every week of the season.
For the Denver Broncos, expectations on offense are sky high entering the 2013 season. With quarterback Peyton Manning and a strong corps of wide receivers including Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, and Wes Welker, the Broncos passing attack will look for another record breaking season, and by taking advantage of potential mismatches with a tight end might be exactly what the team needs to take another big step toward the Super Bowl.
Enter Julius Thomas.
