Joel Dreesen To Sign With Broncos, According To Reports

Joel Dreesen is headed out of Houston. The free agent tight end had narrowed his decision down to returning to Houston, largely as a backup to Owen Daniels, or heading to Denver. Reports are now surfacing that Dreesen will sign with the Broncos after five seasons in Houston:

Dreesen caught 28 passes for 353 yards and six touchdowns in 2011, totalling 1,364 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns for his career. Dreesen is looking for a more expanded role, and the signing of Peyton Manning to the Broncos offense certainly promises a steady amount of pass distribution. Look for the Texans not to sign a replacement, but likely draft a successor in April.
