Broncos add a journeyman tight end to their stable

The Broncos' newest tight end is a mammoth blocker. Gary Kubiak approves.

Gary Kubiak is a man who loves his tight ends.

He should absolutely love a guy like Richard Gordon, then. The Broncos signed the big-bodied veteran after stops in Kansas City, Tennessee, Oakland, and Miami.

At six-foot-four and 265 pounds, Gordon looks more like a sixth lineman than a tight end. Kubiak might ultimately use him that way.

“I'm a blocking tight end,” Gordon told KUSA's Mike Klis. “I've always been that — a blocker.” 

Kubiak has been on the hunt for tight end depth since losing rookie Jeff Heuerman this summer. Perhaps Gordon is the answer at his favorite position.
