The Broncos' release of TE Daniel Graham was about more than just the $1 million roster bonus he was due to receive on March 3. While the financial factor certainly played a role, we hear the Broncos are looking to get more production out of the tight end position. Graham — who played high school, college and professional football in Colorado — had a career-low 148 receiving yards last season on just 18 receptions and was targeted only 37 times. In comparison, WR Brandon Lloyd compiled 170 yards just two games into the season and had two individual outings of more than 148 yards. Graham's production has steadily declined the past three seasons, leaving the Broncos with a decision to make as the organization attempts to rebuild the roster. A source close to the team said he expects the team to add at least one, maybe two, tight ends before the start of the season. The Broncos already have 2009 second-round draft pick Richard Quinn on the roster, who is considered more of a blocking tight end, and need to bring in a couple of dual-threat players at the position.
