Julius Thomas, Jordan Cameron lead free-agent tight end class


It's not often a tight end with double-digit touchdown catches makes it to free agency, but if Julius Thomas and the Broncos choose to part ways, that's exactly what will happen this spring. Thomas tied Rob Gronkowski and Antonio Gates for the league lead among tight ends with 12 touchdowns in the regular season, and he represents the best option available for teams looking to keep pace with the league's top tier of pass-catchers at the position.

Elsewhere in the tight end market, veteran Owen Daniels and the steady Jermaine Gresham offer reliable targets with proven consistency when healthy, and interested teams will be hoping for bounce-back seasons from Charles Clay and Jordan Cameron, who reportedly does not plan to re-sign with the Browns.
