The Denver Broncos have announced that they've signed former Houston Texans tight end Joel Dreessen on Friday, eliminating another player that's visited Cincinnati but eventually signed elsewhere.

By our count that's 13 free agents that's swung through Cincinnati during a free agency tour, with Cincinnati signing two (Jason Allen, BenJarvus Green-Ellis), while six players signed with other teams.

However that's somewhat deceiving. After Jason Allen signed with the Bengals, Aaron Ross and Tracy Porter were no longer targets, since the team choose their veteran free agent cornerback. Same goes for Michael Bush, who signed soon after the Bengals inked BenJarvus Green-Ellis to a three-year deal.

That being said the Bengals only have two tight ends signed for 2012 at the moment -- starting tight end Jermaine Gresham and backup Colin Cochart. It wouldn't be a surprise if the team either looked for another veteran, re-sign either Donald Lee or Bo Scaife back or aims at the NFL draft for someone to help build the overall tight end roster.
