If Joel Dreesen thought tight end pay was unfairly low before, he’s in for a shock this summer, with no pay whatsoever.
The Broncos announced they had released the veteran tight end with a failed physical designation Tuesday.
He caught 41 passes for the Broncos two years ago, but only caught seven passes last year as Julius Thomas flourished as a target for more catches (and ostensibly, more money).
He had three operations on his left knee in the span of a year, and battled through problems with that joint this offseason.
So now the Broncos get to take his $2.5 million in base salary and give it to another tight end.
