The Denver Broncos agreed to terms with tight end Jacob Tamme on Friday, Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway announced.

Tamme (6-foot-3, 236 pounds) is a fifth-year player who saw time in 60 regular-season games (14 starts) with Indianapolis and totaled 92 receptions for 855 yards (9.3 avg.) with five touchdowns. In five playoff appearances (1 start), he caught five passes for 46 yards (9.2 avg.).

Selected by the Colts in the fourth-round (127th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft from the University of Kentucky, Tamme’s best NFL season came in 2010 when he started eight games and set career highs with 67 catches for 631 yards (9.4 avg.) with four touchdowns.

He opened 37-of-48 career games for Kentucky and recorded 133 receptions for 1,417 yards (10.7 avg.) with 11 touchdowns. His 133 receptions ranked first in school history and second in Southeastern Conference annals among tight ends.

Tamme attended Boyle County High School in Danville, Ky., and was born on March 15, 1985.
