Former Colts, Broncos, Falcons TE Jacob Tamme announces retirement after nine seasons

Former Colts, Broncos and Falcons tight end Jacob Tamme has decided to hang up his cleats after nine seasons in the NFL, announcing his retirement on Twitter Thursday.

Tamme, a 2008 fourth-round pick of the Colts, reeled in 92 catches for 855 yards and five touchdowns in 60 games for Indianapolis.

In 2012, Tamme followed quarterback Peyton Manning to Denver, where he caught 86 passes for 848 yards and five scores over three seasons. He played a key part in helping the Broncos advance to Super Bowl 48, which they lost to the Seattle Seahawks.

Tamme spent his final two years (2015-16) with the Atlanta Falcons, hauling in 81 receptions for 867 yards and four touchdowns. He was on injured reserve as the Falcons battled the Patriots in Super Bowl 51.
