The Broncos have been awarded tight end Marcel Jensen off waivers from the Jaguars, a source tells Mike Klis of 9News (via Twitter). Denver has been on the lookout for a tight end after rookie tight end Jeff Heuerman tore his ACL, ruling him out for the season.
Tight ends Owen Daniels and Virgil Green remain the team’s presumptive starters this season, but Jensen will add depth at what is a critical position for the Broncos. On Monday, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com accurately predicted that Denver would add a tight end early in the week.
Jensen, 25, only saw time in one game last season and caught one pass for eight yards.
