We have a good max protect package now as well. Two solid TE's that can catch and block. I'm liking this...

And, I guess all of us that liked Fleener can take him off the board. I guess that's fine because we have more needs than a high pick on TE right now.

Dressen can for sure. He's more of a Daniel Graham style TE. Ran a 4.72, etc. This kid ran in the 4.5 range and is way lighter.

I wouldn't close the book on Julius yet.
He's talented, lots of upside, and to judge the guy for the type of rookie season he had, is too prematured...

Well we ran with 4 TE's on the active roster last year so I guess we'll do that again.

Says the Broncos want some experience at the TE position because the TEs will be used in the offense this season...

There was talk of moving Green to FB last year, I wouldn't be surprised if they tried it.

Has to be better than Larsen, amiright?

So many options here. Tamme I think is a good pick up for the team.

It says you don't let a 3 year window with Manning hinge on two late round TEs being able to produce in year two. Especially when one of them is out for 4 games.

Tamme was just starting to get in a grove and then Manning went down. This will be good for him.

Nothing negative. We will probably keep 4 TE's this year because of how much Manning likes two TE formations. Plus I don't think Denver is going to have a FB on the roster this year so one of the TE's (probably Green) will be playing some FB.

I could see Julius Thomas playing a lot on 3rd down in the 3 WR 1 TE formations.

Virgil Green is going to be suspended for some games and they also have Cornelius Igram on the roster. Training camp battles. Should be great.

Not sure how true that actually is. The formations the Colts used seemed to vary depending on who they were playing. Rarely did they use a set without a tight end at all though. Especially in most recent years, where Clark or whoever would bounce from the TE position to the slot

I heard someone say that Tamme almost never lined up next to the tackle, and like 80% of the time is split wide or in some sort of motion out wide.

He ddint line up next to a tackle often at all back in Indy. You can basically consider Tamme as a bigger target slot WR. His blocking is not too great, but IMO i think is better than dallas clarks (who was awful at blocking)
