Have the Broncos forgotten about the tight end?

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Around the league, the tight end position is a dynamic source of offensive production.

Look at New Orleans' Jimmy Graham, the NFC leader in receptions (87), or New England's Rob Gronkowski, who already has the most TD catches ever in a season by a tight end (15).

However, the tight end revolution hasn't materialized quite yet in Denver.

Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow insists he's not ignoring them, just simply taking what the defense gives him.

Of Tebow's 107 completions since taking over, only nine have been to his tight end crew of Daniel Fells, Virgil Green, Dante Rosario and Julius Thomas.

Only a few of those are memorable.
