As many of us expected all along, the Denver Broncos have signed Brandon Stokley to a one-year deal according to the NFL Network's Jason La Canfora.

Brandon Stokley has reunited with Peyton Manning - Stokley has a 1yr deal with Denver

— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) April 16, 2012

Stokley gave Manning a place to stay while he was visiting Denver before signing with the team, and Stokley will add a familiar face for Manning. Stokley played with Manning in Indianapolis from 2003 through 2006 before moving on to play with none other than the Denver Broncos for 3 seasons. In all reality, this deal just made too much sense for the Broncos to pass up.

Stokley is a savvy veteran that has made a living finding pockets in zones. He's not as quick as he once was, but he's as sure-handed as ever, and he should give the Broncos a very solid possession receiver to help Manning in difficult situations.

Since entering the league in 1999 with the Ravens, Stokley has played for 5 different teams accumulating 339 receptions for 4,680 receiving yards and 34 touchdowns. If you didn't think Stokley was still in the NFL, we don't blame you. Last year, he played in just two games for the Giants, catching just one pass for 7 yards. I'm sure Peyton Manning's glad to have him back in the fold, and I'm sure Brandon Stokley is ready to get back on the field and play some football.
