NFL Free Agency: Tight end Jacob Tamme weighing multiple offers

Could the Broncos sign another tight end?

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, tight end Jacob Tamme is visiting with the Atlanta Falcons but does have multiple offers on the table.

According to Klis, as Tamme was visiting with the Atlanta Falcons, the Broncos stepped in and made an offer to the veteran tight end.

It was reported last week after the Broncos re-signed tight end Virgil Green and signed veteran tight end Owen Daniels that the Broncos would still like Tamme back, and were planning on talking to him. Since then it appears that the Falcons have stepped in and are showing interest in Tamme.

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.

According to Klis, Tamme is seeking a bigger role on offense compared to the prior two seasons in Denver. If he signed with the Broncos he would be behind veteran Owen Daniels and Virgil Green who should get a bigger role in the offense. However in Atlanta he would be competing with tight end Levine Toilolo who only had 31 catches last season for the Falcons.
