When Peyton Manning signed with Denver, the expectation was former Colts cohorts such as Dallas Clark would soon follow to the Rocky Mountains. But it was the 27-year-old Tamme whom the Broncos courted and landed. In his fifth season out of Kentucky, Tamme played sparingly during his first two NFL season. But he burst onto the scene when Clark was injured in 2010, catching 67 passes for 631 yards and four touchdowns while starting only eight of 16 games. His production dipped along with Manning's absence last season to just 19 catches for 177 yards and one touchdown in a horrendous offense. In Denver, he's reunited with Manning, who will find comfort in familiar targets such as Tamme and Brandon Stokley. When Manning needs to pick up a first down, he'll have confidence that Tamme will be where he's supposed to be. A 70-catch, 700-yard season is a realistic goal if Tamme is able to be a favored target over fellow tight end Dreessen, who is also a strong receiver.
