Broncos Free Agency 2012: Caleb Hanie To Back Up Peyton Manning

The Denver Broncos replaced Tim Tebow as starting quarterback, and now they have replaced him as a back up quarterback. Less than five days after dealing Tebow to the New York Jets, the Denver Broncos agreed to a two-year deal with ex-Chicago Bears QB Caleb Hanie, according to ESPN Chicago.

Hanie started six games for the Bears last year after an injury to Jay Cutler. After a promising start against the Oakland Raiders, Hanie fell off of a cliff, finishing the season with a 41.8 QB rating and three touchdowns to nine interceptions. He completed 50% of his passes.
