Horse Tracks: Should Broncos go tight end shopping?

New, comments

Doug Ottewill from our friends over at Mile High Sports suggests that the Denver Broncos should make a move for a tight end.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Wednesday, Broncos Country!

Good morning, everyone.

For today's Horse Tracks, Doug Ottewill from our friends over at Mile High Sports wrote an article discussing the struggles of the Broncos offense and what the Denver Broncos could possibly do to help the predicament and lack of production they are facing at the tight end position.

His suggestion?  Go out and get Vernon Davis.

Davis is 31 and seems to not be getting the attention he deserves in San Francisco, a team that iis essentially (whether they want to admit it or not) going through a rebuilding process. He is a free agent at the end of this season, so it is possible that any trade for him could come at a relatively fair price.

Former Head Coach Mike Shanahan coveted Davis during the draft all those years ago and it might be a dream come true for some fans who had felt the same way if the Broncos are able to make a move for the veteran tight end.

What do you think?  Should the Broncos go out and trade for Vernon Davis?  Is there another tight end you would rather see the team target?  Sound off your opinions in the comments sections.

Once again, thanks for reading and here is today's Horse Tracks.
