The Broncos made it a $17.5 million double Friday, adding their second tight end of the day when Jacob Tamme agreed to terms on a deal. Tamme, who had 67 receptions for the Colts in 2010 filling in for an injured Dallas Clark, is familiar with newly-signed Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, having played four years in the Indianapolis offense.

I think they did a great job collecting TEs for Peyton to throw to. Love Dreessen's potential, all he needs to do now is just add health and he will become a viable part of my dynasty team..er..ah, yeah, he gives Manning a very nice target and he now had a QB who can maximize his skills. Just add health.

Q: What can we expect from the Denver tight ends this year?

A: The Broncos hope to get production at tight end that's close to what Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski have provided the Patriots, who selected Gronkowski in the second round and Hernandez in the fourth round of the 2010 draft. The Patriots use Gronkowski and Hernandez at several spots in the formation, including Hernandez playing running back. They are top-tier receivers who can overwhelm defensive backs with their size and even run past linebackers and safeties.

In two games against the Broncos last season, Gronkowski and Hernandez unraveled their defensive game plan. In the first meeting, at Denver, Gronkowski caught four passes for 53 yards. Hernandez had nine receptions for 129 yards and a touchdown. In the second meeting, a playoff game at New England, Hernandez was the Patriots' leading rusher with 61 yards. He also had four catches for 55 yards and a touchdown. Gronkowski was dominant too, finishing with 10 receptions for 145 yards and three touchdowns.

That's the type of impact the Broncos hope to have at tight end this year. They have signed three free-agent tight ends the last two years — Daniel Fells, Jacob Tamme and former Colorado State star Joel Dreessen — and acquired Julius Thomas and Virgil Green in the 2011 draft.

Broncos TEs Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen have been two of Peyton Manning's most targeted receivers in team drills and seven-on-sevens.
The Denver Post and the Broncos official website expect the tight-end duo to be a major part of Manning offense, invoking comparisons to Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. "They’re going to pose a real problem (for defenses)," safety Mike Adams said. Tamme is the better fantasy bet of the two, though it's fair to wonder if Dreessen will be targeted more in the red zone. Related: Joel Dreessen
