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?
