    The Denver Broncos released TE Joel Dreessen with a failed physical designation Tuesday, July 22.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here as the writing had been on the wall for the injury-hampered TE, leaving Jacob Tamme and Virgil Green behind stud starter Julius Thomas. Dreessen had a career year (41-356-5) two seasons ago in his Denver debut, but the emergence of Thomas and nagging knee issues limited him to a 7-47-1 2013 season.

    Denver Broncos TE Joel Dreessen hasn't participated in the team's offseason program due to knee surgery.

    Huddle Up: Dreessen, the Broncos' fourth TE on many depth chart, caught only 7 passes for 47 yards and 1 TD last season and is in real danger of not making the final roster.

    The Denver Broncos may release TEs Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen this offseason in order to create some salary cap space. Tamme is scheduled to have a $3.5 million salary cap figure next season, while Dreessen is scheduled to have a cap figure of over $3 million.

    Huddle Up: While both Tamme and Dreessen are solid players, neither is a must-have in the Broncos' Peyton Manning-led attack. Of course, the advantages to catching passes from Manning are obvious so one or both of the veteran tight ends could opt to re-work their deal in order to save the Broncos some money and remain in Denver.
