The Denver Broncos agreed to terms with tight end Jacob Tamme on Friday, Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway announced.

Tamme (6-foot-3, 236 pounds) is a fifth-year player who saw time in 60 regular-season games (14 starts) with Indianapolis and totaled 92 receptions for 855 yards (9.3 avg.) with five touchdowns. In five playoff appearances (1 start), he caught five passes for 46 yards (9.2 avg.).

Selected by the Colts in the fourth-round (127th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft from the University of Kentucky, Tamme’s best NFL season came in 2010 when he started eight games and set career highs with 67 catches for 631 yards (9.4 avg.) with four touchdowns.

He opened 37-of-48 career games for Kentucky and recorded 133 receptions for 1,417 yards (10.7 avg.) with 11 touchdowns. His 133 receptions ranked first in school history and second in Southeastern Conference annals among tight ends.

Tamme attended Boyle County High School in Danville, Ky., and was born on March 15, 1985.

    I am loving this.  Really like Tamme.  They also metioned on PFT that they might be going after Clark as well.

  • Tom9798

    Another great pick!  With Tamme and Dreessen, the TE is covered!
    So much for me picking a TE in the 4th rd. for a Penxa painting!

  • Thomasharris54

    now add Forte

  • anthony33

    Some great adds the last couple of days!!!

    MLB – DT – RB  still needed through FA or draft.  Oh yeah, a QB too!

  • Thomasharris54

    McNabb or Vince Young would b good backup options.

    Rosario was a one-man wrecking crew….IN ST PENALTIES!

    Gooood friggin’ riddance.

    Where is Dallas Clarke? He is typically unstoppable. I cant remember how many Colts games I’ve watched and wondered “why the hell cant any one cover this guy”… He was on my fantasy team last year also and helped me win a fee games. That aside, I hope he is still in the mix here.

    Just say NO to either of them…

    Yeah.  Rosario is terrible.  That’s addition by subtraction.

    There are a few interesting QB’s in the draft that may be available in rounds 2 or three.  Weeden, Osweiler, Foles and Lindley.  Find the one that has the most potential in a Manning style offense and start grooming him for 3-4 years down the road.

    Hearing Bronx are in hot pursuit of Caleb Hanie… put him just above the Young-McNabb category.  He is awful.

    He has been incognito… is anyone talking with him?  Feels like we are starting to fill in the pieces. 

    Wish Saturday would have signed as I think Walton is just so so.  

    Need another good back to compliment or replace McGahee. 

    Defense, defense and more defense.
