ENGLEWOOD, Colo.—The Denver Broncos keep adding offensive personnel for Peyton Manning as they agreed to terms with tight end Joel Dreessen.

The former Colorado State University standout has hauled in 110 passes for 1,364 yards and 13 TDs in six seasons with the New York Jets and Houston Texans. Last season, Dreessen caught 28 passes for 353 yards and six scores for the Texans.

Dreessen was a sixth-round pick of the Jets in 2005 after a stellar career at CSU in which he was a two-time All-Mountain West Conference selection.

With Dreessen on board, the Broncos have a tight end crew of Virgil Green, Julius Thomas and Cornelius Ingram. Green will miss the opening four games of the 2012 season for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
