Thanks For The Fumble, Dreessen!

Editor's Note:  Sunday, Buffalo Bills running back Bryce Brown had the ball stripped from his grasp just as he was about to cross the goal line for a critical score in the second half against the Kansas City Chiefs, prompting a touchback.  The loss of those sure points loomed large as the Bills lost the game soon after, 17-13.  Brown's lapse isn't the first time an NFL player...

Denver Broncos: Why Joel Dreessen should be nervous

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.

Do Denver Broncos need to add depth at TE by drafting one?

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.

So cover32 sat down with two former Jets, who are preparing to...
