The Denver Broncos on Monday signed wide receiver Brandon Stokley, according to NFL Network‘s Jason La Canfora. Terms of the one-year deal are not known, but it is likely that Stokley signed a veteran minimum contract.
About to turn 36, Stokley, who played with quarterback Peyton Manning in Indianapolis, has made a name for himself in the NFL as a clutch slot receiver and if he makes Denver’s roster, that is likely the role that he will fill for the Broncos this season. At the very least, Stokley will provide a familiar target for Manning in training camp and help the young receivers on Denver’s roster learn the offense and routes that come with it.
A thirteen year veteran, Stokley (6-0, 192 lbs.), has spent time with five different teams since 1999 and has won a pair of Super Bowl rings along the way (2000 Ravens and 2007 Colts).
