Here’s the site’s official ‘About’ section:

In NFL locker rooms, the difference between a great year and a great career can be how a player handles his first experience with success.
Joel Dreessen was a solid NFL player who saw his share of young egos expand whenever they were fed by the spotlight. Dreessen doesn't see that in Julius Thomas, who ultimately replaced him as the Broncos' starting tight end.
Today the Denver Broncos released tight and Joel Dreesen who was a pretty big factor in the Broncos offense one healthy. @AdamSchefter: Denver Broncos designated tight end Joel Dreessen as released/failed physical, the team announced. Regardless of the situation the Broncos had to get rid of one tight end as Julius Thomas has stepped up […]
The post Broncos release TE Joel Dreesen...
Tight end Joel Dreessen was released by the Denver Broncos after being designated as having failed a physical.
Dreessen was signed as a free agent two years ago with the goal of providing quarterback Peyton Manning with a veteran pass-catching tight end threat. He caught a career-high 41 passess for 356 yards and five touchdowns in 2012.
The Denver Broncos announced Tuesday they they have designated tight end Joel Dreessen as released/failed physical, ending his two-year run with the team. Dressen, a nine-year veteran, joined the Broncos prior to the 2012 season after playing five seasons with the Houston Texans. Dressen, a former Colorado State player, caught 41 passes for 356 yards and five touchdowns in his...

The Denver Broncos announced the release of veteran TE Joel Dreessen on Tuesday with a failed physical designation.
Denver will now move forward with Julius Thomas, Jacob Tamme and Virgil Green as the top-three tight ends.
Dreessen, 31, was entering the final year of his three-year, $8.5 million contract and would have made $2.5 million for the upcoming season.
Every year in the NFL there is more than one unexpected cut of a veteran player. However, if the Denver Broncos cut Joel Dreessen this year, it won’t be much of a surprise. 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...
Last week, we evaluated the Denver Broncos' wide receivers, in part III of this series. Today, we look at tight ends.Before 2013, there were only a handful of elite tight ends in the NFL. Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Vernon Davis, Antonio Gates; you could even throw Tony Gonzalez in there.But a new name appeared in the upper echelon of tight ends last season.Let's take a...
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....
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...

Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey is one step closer to returning to game action. USA Today has reported that Bailey was able to practice Thursday, his first practice since spraining his footaugust 17th.

The Denver Broncos will be without cornerback Champ Bailey and tight end Joel Dreessen for the second straight game after both sat out Friday’s practice. Bailey (foot) and Dreessen (knee) were the only Broncos
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 wore a rain jacket and slogged through puddles as he ran in a steady drizzle Thursday while his Denver Broncos teammates went through practice.
The area has been hit hard by torrential rain, leading to flooding in Northern Colorado, especially mountain communities around Boulder. The Broncos have a nearby indoor training facility for bad weather, but practiced on the...
