There are three reasons why: salary, production and younger players. The Denver Broncos have been lucky to have four solid tight ends over the last two years. They have been happy with that group and have kept...

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...

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.
