Default Please Welcome Joel Dreessen

Please bombard his FB page with love.

Dollar for dollar, manning haters will argue he is our best signing so far, which says a lot about him. (I love PM)

Some twitter dude just announced he chose us over his former team, the Texans.

Quote:
The Texans absorbed another roundhouse punch in free agency on Friday, when tight end Joel Dreessen left for the Broncos.

Dreessen, who played at Colorado State, visited Denver on Wednesday. He had offers from the Broncos and Texans — a chance to play with Peyton Manning or try to help the Texans win another AFC South title.

this is what pro football focus had to say about him

Joel Dreessen, TE

The injuries to Owen Daniels have quietly allowed Dreessen the opportunity to develop into one of the more complete tight ends in the league. He won’t wow you with his athleticism but he’s player you can count on every down.

Not only can he catch, but he was a vital part of their running attack last year.

Terrific pickup.

he was probably cheap, he can catch, he can block extremely well... he's a local.. he WANTS to be here. he's not an issue off the field... he's young... he has a cool germanic name... he'll probably drink with fans at bars... he's a better pick up than dallas clark would have been... he's not injury prone... what are you worried about?

This is a great signing and really from out of nowhere! Hadn't even heard he was on the radar. Colorado is a factory for tight ends, it seems.



BTW Bowlen's broke!

Later Lonnie Paxton...freaking loser.

Botched snaps in first NE game...sat out the 2nd.

Yes, Dreessen is a long snapper!!!

This saves us an extra $1M against the cap!!!

I heard he had to borrow the money for these signings from Hat after he made so much betting against the Broncos last year.

I still have P. Cox as my adopt-a-bronco, how can I change mine to Dreessen? I haven't changed it in years.

Fantastic signing. I'm still wondering what all the panicking was about early on. We're making some quality signings.

Dreessen can also play fullback. Lots-o-options for PM.

1. Joe Mays, the $12M man.

2. Who's playing DT?

The FO still has a TON of work to do man. Work we knew would be needed before the season was even over. We can pray that Irving takes a leap forward to answer MLB but DT is a massive issue still.

Anyhow, Dreessen is a real good signing. He'll be a good starting option while we see if Thomas and Green can develop.
