Broncos Free Agency 2012: Brandon Stokley Will Visit Denver To Discuss Reuniting With Peyton Manning

The Denver Broncos have been working to build depth around star quarterback Peyton Manning, and now the team is bringing in one of his favorite receivers for a recruitment visit. Free agent wide receiver Brandon Stokley is on the Broncos' radar and will be brought in for a visit, according to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network. Stokley and Manning teamed up in Indianapolis for four consecutive seasons, and the 35-year-old WR hit career highs as a Colt in 2004 with 68 receptions, 1,077 yards and 10 touchdowns.

The receiving corps for Denver is headlined by younger players like Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Andre Caldwell and Jason Hill, so Stokley would provide some experience and veteran leadership as a situational slot receiver and a familiar outlet for Manning when things go wrong. Even so, Stokley has not caught a TD pass since 2009 (as a member of the Broncos) and had just one reception for seven yards last season with the New York Giants.
