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

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.

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

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.

Excellent TE pickups. I think these two are far better than what we had last season honestly.

We may see a lot of 2 wr 2 TE and single back.

Green is already out for four games and I doubt he's going anywhere.

I bet both Dreessen and Green spend a little time at FB as well.

I like that they've added younger guys than just going with 1-2 year guys like Clark and Saturday. I think Thomas, Tamme, Dreesen, Decker sets are going to be difficult to cover, and they'll all be around for awhile.

You think we are taking a page out of the Bellacheat book ? Stretch the field with your WR and then pass to the TE over the middle. They Killed us with it last year.

I really like where this team is going.

Tamme is a poor blocker but I think he's a great receiver. Great pickup. Wish the Chargers tried to get him.

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

At first I wasn't high on the Tamme idea. But it feels better today somehow.
