NFL Free Agency: Broncos would like tight end Jacob Tamme back

Could the Broncos be signing another tight end?

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

According to the Denver Posts Troy Renck, the Denver Broncos will talk to tight end Jacob Tamme today, and that they would like the veteran tight end back with the Broncos in 2015.

The Denver Broncos signed tight end Virgil Green, and veteran tight end Owen Daniels yesterday. They also took a flier on CFA tight end Joe Don Duncan. Now could they be re-signing the Jacob Tamme?

“I plan to talk to Jacob Tamme today,” Kubiak said. “We are interested in bringing him back.”

Tamme has spent the last three seasons with the Denver Broncos and has totaled 86 receptions for 848 yards, and 5 touchdowns. Last season he caught 14 balls for 109 yards, and 2 touchdowns. Tamme would compete with Virgil Green and Owen Daniels for snaps at tight end, and could play some fullback if called on.

Tight ends are very important in Gary Kubiak's offense. He often uses two tight end sets, and they're utilized in the passing game. So adding tight ends was an obvious priority for the Broncos in free agency. However, if the Broncos do re-sign Jacob Tamme, I think it would be a comfort signing for quarterback Peyton Manning. Tamme has played all but one season with Peyton Manning, and keeping Tamme would give Manning a tight end he trusts.
