The Denver Broncos, looking for a dependable pass-catcher, reached a one-year agreement with former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Brandon Stokley.

Terms of the deal weren't available but Stokley did not sign for just the veteran minimum salary. He signed a contract in excess of $1 million a year, but the amount wasn't immediately known. Incentives were built into the contract because Stokley is coming off an Achilles' tendon tear.

Stokley had also been talking to the New Orleans Saints, who are looking for a veteran after the release of Joe Horn.

Considered one of the most dependable inside slot receivers, Stokley should help Jay Cutler with passes in the middle of the field.

and there's more....

Denver FA moves wrote:Broncos agree to four-year deal with DL McKinley

When Mike Shannahan has needs on his defensive line he usually looks to Cleveland, and, believe it or not, he did it again.

On Tuesday, the Broncos reached a four-year agreement in principle with Browns defensive lineman Alvin McKinley. McKinley becomes the eighth former Browns defensive lineman to join the Broncos in the past three offseasons.

The timing of this signing, though, comes in interesting time for the Broncos. They are starting to unload some of the former Browns. On Monday, they released former Browns defensive end Courtney Brown because of knee problems. McKinley's re-signing probably ends the two-year stay of former Browns defensive tackle Michael Myers, who is an unrestricted free agent.

The McKinley signing also comes at a time the Broncos are trying to finalize a Dan Wilkinson trade. Wilkinson has until around the draft to pass a physcal in order for the trade not to be voided. For several weeks, the Broncos couldn't find Wilkinson. He has been in contact with him, but there are some thoughts he might need a procedure done on a knee.

The Broncos had been talking with Bears defensive tackle Ian Scott, but opted to sign McKinley instead.

I really like the Stokley signing - it gives them a younger #3 option ahead of Rod Smith.

Stokley is a fantastic signing. Despite having down seasons in 2005/2006, he's only two years removed from a 10 TD season with Peyton. Mind you a lot of that was Peyton magic, but I could see Stokley providing a strong veteran presence and possibly competing for a job and catches, depending on how well he's healed.

Keep in mind what Shanny did with McCaffery in the late years of his career. Damn I miss Easy Ed.

Yeah, if Rod comes back healthy, a four receiver set with Smith, Stokley, Marshall, and Walker would be awful intimidating wouldn't it ?
