Broncos | Duke back from NFL Europe; ready to roll

Lee Rasizer, of the Rocky Mountain News, reports Denver Broncos TE Wesley Duke has returned from NFL Europe. In Europe, he experienced losing as part of a team with the developmental league's second-worst record and needed to demonstrate patience because he wasn't starting. "His deal going to Europe was tremendous for him," Broncos tight ends coach Tim Brewster said. "He's got a level of confidence now that he can do this." Despite Duke's modest role in the passing game, he did get plenty of practice working on his techniques on inside and outside zone running plays and combination blocks that are similar to skills used in the Broncos' system. The Broncos' tight end position is wide open given the March release of TE Jeb Putzier, the team's third- leading receiver last season.
