The Denver Broncos have agreed to terms with free agent wide receiver Andre Caldwell on a two year deal, according to PFT.  Caldwell first reported the news himself on Twitter.

Caldwell was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft after playing collegiate football at the University of Florida — with New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.  A fifth year player, Caldwell is expected to become Denver’s third or fourth receiver.

Though he has never posted overly impressive numbers, Caldwell has shown potential with the Bengals.  With Peyton Manning as the quarterback, all of the receivers on Denver’s roster have seen their stock rise.

Denver now has six receivers on the active roster with Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Caldwell, D’Andre Goodman, Jason Hill and Matthew Willis.  Fellow receiver Mark Dell is listed on the team’s injured reserve list and receivers Greg Orton, Tyler Grisham and Tim Toone were signed to future contracts earlier in the year.

Caldwell, 26, is a 6-0, 190 pound receiver who has caught 124 passes in his career for 1,172 yards and six touchdowns (including three last season — one of which came against Denver in Week 2 of last season).

Caldwell adds decent depth to Denver’s receiver corps.  Do you approve of the signing?

    come on.

    Eddie replacement w/o return skills or speed.

  • Broncobrian41

    WHO? Seriously

  • Rbschaeffer22

    Good signing. He can catch the ball. Im worried our DT’s will stink this year. 

  • King

    Not entirely true.  He has sufficient speed, but better hands. 

    Great acquisition on the cheap.

    Still time to add some in free agency, plus Vickerson and Warren are coming back plus we still have the draft.

    Caldwell is really underrated, good signing.

    I wouldn’t brag about Vickerson and Warren and there are no more good DTs left in free agency.

    And adding rookie DTs isn’t necessarily promising. This will be a massive hole in Denver’s game all year. It will take two years to fix.

    sigh…even Willis is better. Good thing Foxy likes to run the ball.

    You told me not to brag about Vickerson last year, too. I still think he’s pretty good.

    As long as he can play as well at defensive tackle in the 4-3 as he did at DE in the 3-4 he should really help.  He was invisible in the beginning of 2011 though.  Warren?  Hope he’s not washed up.

    Excellent!  Is he the Bengal that did the front flip spin thing over a defender?????

    *Googles it*

    Oh he’s not, ah well, excitement is subsiding.

    I think you’re wrong there. Vickerson wasn’t very good.

    You also believed Joe Mays would be good, and I told you he was a bum.

    Joe Mays is a bum.

  • Thomasharris54

    we need Mike Wallace, but can’t get him cause we need a DT & have to draft 1 @ 25 in the draft, Indy always put offense 1st why can’t we its a passing league.

  • johnny

    Don’t worry, FEX won’t draft a DT in the first round, just like last year. Book it.

  • NateDB88

    A hard hitting bum.

  • NateDB88

    That was my first thought as well! I did exactly what you did.

    Peyton won 1 SB in 13 years in Indy, that’s why. We only have him for 2 – 3 years.

  • Rbschaeffer22

    Warren who we traded to the Raiders? 

  • Rbschaeffer22

    Joe Mays kills niggas! lol 

  • rcsodak

    Look at run stats with/without him. He’s ben their best run defender.

  • rcsodak

    Or the yr b4, or the yr b4 that, or the yr b4 that, or……….

  • Rbschaeffer22

    We defiantly need to draft two Defensive Tackles this draft. Also, we need to look @ rb Ryan Turbin from Utah State in the later rounds. Get rid of lance ball!

  • rcsodak

    Contract says 5

    No, that guy is going to prison for a while.  Apparently it’s frowned upon to have 2 1/2 pounds of weed shipped to your house.  Go figure.

     I admit I was wrong about Mays, he’s not a good middle linebacker, but I still think he’s a talented linebacker. 

    But I think Vickerson is better than a middle-of-the-pack defensive tackle.
