Football teams and their makeups ebb and flow like the ocean, it seems.
Last season, the Denver Broncos came in with two very qualified tight ends and a few more younger guys to add depth, but that’s not how it all ended.
Joel Dreessen was going to be the starter, but then injured his knee, and Jacob Tamme was going to be the next man up until Julius Thomas made heads turn in...
The Denver Broncos were outmanned from the start.
Seattle's famed 12th Man crossed up the highest-scoring team in history when they caused the Broncos to fall behind just 12 seconds into the Super Bowl on Sunday night.
Peyton Manning stepped up toward the line just as center Manny Ramirez snapped the ball. It flew past his incredulous quarterback and into the end zone, where...

This Sunday at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands (as in every NFL game) there will be a third team in the field: the officials.But unlike the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks, this team is an all-star crew, with the top seven officials from each position in 2013 (referee, umpire, head linesman, line judge, field judge, side judge and back judge) being selected to the...
NFL players rely on all sorts of methods for dealing with the type of weather the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks are expected to face in the Super Bowl.
Even if there's no snow or rain on Sunday, which is what the National Weather Service predicts, the high temperature is supposed to be 38 degrees. With the opening kickoff set for about 6:30 p.m., it could be in the 20s...

We’re just over a week away from the Super Bowl, and even Kentucky hoops fans are getting excited for it. Today, at today’s game against Georgia, UK mascots Wildcat and Scratch donned Denver Broncos jerseys at halftime. They were also joined by Kentucky’s tight ends coach, Vince Marrow:

Good evening, Patriots fans. Well, what can I say? The Patriots will not be playing in Super Bowl XLVIII in East Rutherford, NJ. Today, New England simply took on a much better Denver Broncos team. From start to finish, today was just not the Patriots’ day.
Denver won the toss and deferred, but the Pats went 3 and out. Eventually both teams traded 3 and outs but the Broncos...
Your Tears Are So Yummy> Both teams failed to score on their first possession, which meant the game wasn't a classic> Denver had the big yardage edge early, but since they didn't score a touchdown in the red zone, it felt like Foreshadowing> The refs didn't call DPI early, which is all OK now, I guess> Denver scored on its second red zone drive, because they...
Bill Belichick: the Shia LeBeouf of master motivators.Despite what the media machine may claim, this game is about more than the meeting of Jacob Tamme and Matthew Mulligan. Hard to believe, but it’s true. For the sake of fairness to the others involved, let’s try to look past those legendary backup tight ends whose legacy will be shaped in part by what transpires today.Thanks...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer A year ago, Denver roared into the playoffs riding an 11-game winning streak and promptly lost for the first time in 98 days.
So much for momentum.
This year, the Broncos are again 13-3 and the AFC's top seed, two home wins away from the Super Bowl.
Only, they're far from the overconfident, sauntering unit...

Looking back, difficult as it may be, the Broncos doomed themselves by dominating the Baltimore Ravens four weeks before when they played them again.
It was mid-December of last season, and the Broncos had the Ravens whipped 31-3 midway through the third quarter before coasting to a 34-17 win.
When the teams met again in a second-round AFC playoff game Jan. 12, the Broncos tried...

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas (knee) will not play Sunday in the rematch with Kansas City.Fantasy Spin:Jacob Tamme caught five passes for 47 yards and a touchdown against the Pats and could be a decent fill-in for desperate owners.
Jacob Tamme was the OTHER free agent who chose Denver as his destination last year after making a name for himself in Indianapolis.
His familiarity with Peyton Manning paid off with a starting role for the Broncos in 2012, and he ranked third on the club in catches (52) and yards receiving (555) to go along with two TDs.
That all changed this season with the emergence of Julius...

Today when the Broncos took the practice field #18 looked big like he had been lifting weights. Well cone to find out, it wasn’t Peyton Manning but Jacob Tamme instead. “I was looking for 84 but he wasn’t out there,” Tamme laughed when asked who he was looking to throw to. “It was fun. Some […]
After missing some time with knee injury, Broncos tight end Jacob Tamme was back at practice today, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.
This is great news for the Broncos who need Tamme to have a strong season even though he’s not expected to be highly productive with Wes Welker now on the roster.

Broncos starting tight end Joel Dressen is out for the remainder of training
camp after suffering a set back to his surgically repaired left knee, according
to USA Today's Lindsay H. Jones. Dressen originally had sugery on the knee in June
of last year. He will now undergo an arthroscopic surgery to further clean out
the repaired knee. Dressen had been a full participant...
Another starter has suffered a significant injury. Starting tight end Joel Dreessen had a setback in his recovery from kneecap surgery and will be out at least two weeks.
The Broncos’ top two tight ends from last year Dreessen and Jacob Tamme didn’t dress for the scrimmage Saturday. Tamme was sidelined last week with a pulled quad. They combined for 93 receptions in 2012.
Editor's note: Ignore the fact that I'm drinking out of a Denver Broncos' coffee mug, sitting next to a Denver Broncos' blanket, and wearing Denver Broncos Zubaz pants (ok, maybe not that extreme). So, suffice it to say, I'm a fan. Now that I've given you that full disclosure, let me also note that I'm the biggest critic of the teams that I follow and...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer Joel Dreessen and Jacob Tamme combined for 93 catches, 911 yards and seven touchdowns last season, yet the tight end making all the noise at the Denver Broncos' training camp is a third-year pro with all of one career catch to his name.
Julius Thomas is dropping jaws, eluding linebackers, overpowering safeties...
First of all if your looking for a NFL writer who’s going to hold your hand and pat you on the back you came to the wrong place. Today were talking about a real thing in the real world so if you want real soft takes go see what Whitlock has to say about the Zimmerman trial folks.

Last Sunday, Broncos star linebacker Von Miller missed the Pro Bowl with a shoulder injury. Fortunately, the injury won’t force Miller to undergo surgery.
Due to incentives, cornerback Champ Bailey ($500,000), tight end Jacob Tamme ($125,000), wide receiver Eric Decker and center J.D. Walton ($693,000) have all received pay raises.

He was Denver’s most well rounded tight end and was rewarded with 300 more snaps on offense than Jacob Tamme. Mostly because of Dreessen’s demeanor blocking...
Denver’s chances of making their first Superbowl in 14 years look increasingly good heading into the final week of the regular season, with the Broncos just needing a win over lowly Kansas City to guarantee a first-round bye.
While Peyton Manning has spearheaded this team into one of the most dominating offences in the NFL, defensive coordinator, Jack Del Rio, has sorted things...
