The Denver Broncos held a post-practice press conference, giving their players a chance to share some early insights on the new offense. Receiver Andre Caldwell and tight end Joel Dreessen, among others, addressed the media this time. Caldwell said that Peyton Manning is leading the offense, but fellow receiver Eric Decker is also showing his leadership abilities during drills:
Caldwell says Manning is "literally leading everything," but that Manning and Decker "go hand in hand" in leading the drills.— MaxBroncos (@MaxBroncos) April 19, 2012
As for Dreessen, the ex-Colorado St. Rams tight end and childhood fan of the Broncos needed to put the home state storyline behind him:
Dreessen on being a fan: "I had to get over that real quick, because I've got a job to do...I want to find another level to my career."— Denver Broncos (@Denver_Broncos) April 19, 2012
He's also finding it a great experience to work with Manning. Dreessen will share the tight end position with Jacob Tamme, a free agent signee from Indianapolis. Manning certainly won't lack any safety valves this coming season, and if the team drafts a wide receiver the offense should be high-flying.
