Broncos Free Agency 2012: Andre Caldwell Signs With Denver, Brings More Depth To Receiving Corps

The Denver Broncos are in desperate need for wide receiver depth now that Peyton Manning is on board, and on Wednesday afternoon they agreed to terms on a two-year deal with former Cincinnati Bengals WR Andre Caldwell. The 26-year old wideout was drafted by Cincinnati in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft (97th overall), and has recorded 124 receptions for 1,172 yards and six touchdowns in his four-year NFL career.

The Broncos sent a seventh-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft along with Tim Tebow to the Jets in exchange for 2012 fourth-round and sixth-round picks from New York, but the Tebow ties live on with Caldwell, who was Tebow's teammate and one of his favorite targets at the University of Florida in 2006 and 2007.

The team also agreed to terms with free agent linebacker Wesley Woodyard and offensive guard Manny Ramirez amid all of the Manning and Tebow chaos. Woodyard recorded 60 solo tackles and 30 assists in six starts (15 games played) during 2011.
