The Denver Broncos have brought in tight end Dante Rosario to help alleviate the pressure off two rookie tight ends and to challenge Dan Gronkowski. Rosario will join the team once he passes his physical on Sunday, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.
Rosario had played for head coach John Fox in Carolina for the last four years. Rosario was a fifth-round pick in 2007 and has steadily seen his production increase each season. He had a career high 32 receptions in 2010, but he had a career best 313 yards in 2009.
Julius Thomas and Virgil Green, fourth- and seventh-round draft picks, are raw projects who may not be able to contribute immediately. Rosario now makes it simpler for them to ease into the NFL. Tight end was a tough spot for the Broncos in 2010.
