Broncos TE Julius Thomas worked his way into more and more repetitions during training camp -- part of his first healthy offseason as a pro -- and eventually led the team in preseason catches and tied for the lead in preseason receiving yards. Thomas has moved all the way to No. 1 on the tight end depth chart.

“It was good to see him. He made some errors in the running game and in the passing game. He’s got to clean a few things up. But obviously everybody can see, as an athlete, the guy has got a lot of talent. And we’re going to keep bringing him along, and give him as many reps as possible. He still has a lot of things to learn and a lot of things he needs to see.”
Joel Dreesen will miss rest of camp

The team's starting tight end will be sidelined for the rest of training camp after suffering a setback with his surgically repaired left knee, The Denver Post reported Saturday.
Dreessen originally underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in late May. He will now undergo a second arthroscopic procedure to clean up the knee, a person with knowledge of the procedure told USA Today on Sunday.
It's a sudden turn of events for Dreessen, who had been practicing without any reported issues through Friday. He sat out the team's scrimmage on Saturday because of pain in the knee, according to USA Today.
We figure Jacob Tamme to get more catches of the group, but Dreessen is the better blocker and has also been a red zone target. Neither player is more than a TE2 option.

Broncos TE Jacob Tamme has been out there with the first team. Besides the youthful competition at his position, Tamme may also be affected by the addition of slot receiver Wes Welker. Last season, there was a nice mix between Tamme and slot receiver Brandon Stokley. They ranked third and fourth on the team with 52 and 45 catches, respectively.
Even if in the interest of balance Welker's stats drop from his 112-catch average in six previous seasons with New England to around 80 this year with the Broncos, Tamme doesn't figure to have as many balls thrown his way.

Add a receiver who has 672 receptions over the past six years into an offense and it's bound to have an impact on how things get distributed. But Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas said Wes Welker's presence can help everyone's output.
"I knew when he was coming in that I would probably get more one-on-one coverage, so I was kind of excited, actually, because with that guy, and (Eric) Decker, and two great tight ends, it's going to be hard to double-team somebody," Thomas said. "So, I think it will help me out and help the team out.
"He's one of the best in the game at what he does at the slot position. I think he can bring something in for us and help us out on the offensive side of the ball."
Broncos sign Wes Welker to a two-year deal
Wednesday, March 13, 2013, 5:03pm
It's reportedly a two-year deal worth $12 million total, so a curious move by the Patriots to let him walk. Welker will take over for Brandon Stokley (45-544-5) in the slot, and will surely siphon some targets off of Eric Decker, Jacob Tamme and perhaps Demaryius Thomas, who has a downfield skill set that might protect his targets more than the other Bronco receivers. Still, Welker should be heavily targeted, and that will impact the entire offense. His value goes down a bit with the move. It's a boost for Peyton Manning, who gets a great weapon in the slot. In New England, Welker's departure is good news for Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski, along with whomever the Patriots find to start at receiver next season. (Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman are “poor man’s Welkers” and Brandon Lloyd may get a chance to stick around.) As for Tom Brady, he can't be happy about losing his security blanket in the slot.
