Tight ends split from Denver
By Bill Williamson
It looks like Daniel Fells and Dante Rosario could see the writing on the wall.
As news broke that Peyton Manning will sign with Denver, Fells signed with the New England Patriots and Rosario signed with the San Diego Chargers. Tight ends Dallas Clark and Jacob Tamme may be on their way to Denver for a Colts’ reunion.
Rosario will add depth in San Diego, and his signing continues a trend of intra-AFC West movement. He clearly thought he better get a new job because of Clark and Tamme’s potential arrival in Denver.
The Broncos currently have Julius Thomas and Virgil Green at tight end. They were rookies last season. Green will serve a four-game NFL suspension to start the season for using banned substance. The team expects Thomas to make strides in his second season whether or not Manning gets to play with some familiar faces.
