(AP Photo/Ed Reinke) A week ago today, we speculated that the Broncos may bring back veteran receiver Brandon Stokley if the team landed Peyton Manning.  The next day, Stokley told 104.3 The Fan that he would sign with Denver if Manning asked him to. Manning must have just asked him to because NFL Network‘s Jason La Canfora is reporting that Stokley is “likely to be signed” by the Broncos.  Stokley, 35, is familiar with Manning and could become Denver’s fourth wide receiver, as the team is currently slim at the position. Stokley’s best season came in 2004 when he played with Manning in Indianapolis and caught 68 passes for 1,077 yards and 10 touchdowns.  With two Super Bowl rings, Stokley would bring experience to Denver’s young receiving corps.  Another player to watch is former Colts’ center Jeff Saturday, who has a visit scheduled with the team, per La Canfora.  Saturday, 36, has been Manning’s center for the past ten years and is an experienced veteran with 188 career starts. With the opportunity to groom Broncos’ current center J.D. Walton, Saturday could possibly start for several more seasons in Denver before handing the reins back to Walton.  Another former Colt that the Broncos will be interested in is tight end Dallas Clark, who has caught 46 touchdowns since the 2003 season. With tight end Daniel Fells now in New England and Dante Rosario joining San Diego, tight end has become a huge position of need in Denver.  Expect the team to bring in at least one tight end during free agency and possibly draft another in April. Are you in favor of bringing in players like Stokley, Saturday and Saturday?
