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...
Joel Dreessen has enjoyed too good an NFL career to have it end from the sidelines.
One of only 12 players to start a football game at the high school (Fort Morgan), college (Colorado State) and NFL (Broncos) level in the state of Colorado, Dreessen will have surgery on his troublesome left knee next week in hopes he can play out the final year of his contract with the Broncos....

Not bad for a first time shot caller.In 2014, the Broncos are faced...
NEW YORK -- Those looking for future stars of the football broadcasting world might want to keep an eye on Denver Broncos tight end Joel Dreessen. The 31-year-old used to do some video work for the Houston Texans' website, and when he got some positive feedback and found himself enjoying it, he figured it might be worth taking his media involvement to a new level.

It’s Super Bowl week in New York City and unfortunately, the New York Jets aren’t involved. In more unfortunate news, the Jets aren’t really ever involved. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t some weird, tangential storyline we can’t dig up, because that, after all, is what Super Bowl media week is all about. So cover32 sat down with two former Jets, who are preparing to...

OK, it might seem a bit silly, but Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper has temporarily re-named the Centennial State’s 14,000-plus foot mountains for Denver Broncos players according to the Associated Press.
Mount Elbert, our tallest mountain at 14,440 feet, is now named for Peyton Manning. Pike’s Peak has been named for Joel Dreessen, the former...
According to Fox's Jay Glazer, Denver tight end Julius Thomas (knee) will need a miracle to play in Sunday night's game against the Patriots.Fantasy Spin:Hopefully you had a backup plan in place. Joel Dreessen is likely to start in Thomas' place. With temperatures in the low 20s and wind gusts upwards of 25 mph, playing conditions will be far from ideal Sunday night in Foxboro.

Denver tight end Julius Thomas left Sunday's contest against the Redskins with an ankle injury and didn't return for the remainder of the game.Fantasy Spin:Thomas will have an MRI on Monday. He's been a great fantasy discovery this season catching 39 balls for 451 yards and eight TDs. Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen will slide in at tight end if Thomas remains sidelined.
To Jeff Rodgers a roster is a puzzle.
The Broncos' special-teams coordinator tinkers tweaks. He looks at the list of heights weights and positions not as classifications but as possibilities. To Rodgers Joel Dreessen isn't a tight end. He's 6-foot-4 and 245 pounds of mass agile enough strong enough fast enough. Kayvon Webster is 5-11 and 198 his position as a cornerback...

Broncos tight end Joel Dreessen (knee surgery) will not be available for Week 2 against the Giants.Fantasy Spin:Given Julius Thomas' production in Week 1 (5-110-2) neither Dreessen or Peyton Manning favorite Jacob Tamme figure to get much usage.
Champ Bailey will not return to the field this weekend.
Bailey, 35, has been dealing with a mid-foot sprain and currently there is no timetable for his return.
