The Broncos are bringing “Bubba” back.
Denver re-signed former Gator receiver Andre Caldwell on Tuesday before he hit the free agent market at 2 p.m., reportedly agreeing to a two-year deal worth $3.45 million.
Caldwell first joined the Broncos in 2012 after four years with the Cincinnati Bengals, who selected him in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft.
In his first season in Denver, the 6-foot, 200-pounder was fifth on the depth chart and caught just one pass for 18 yards in eight games played.
Last year he moved up to the fourth receiver, played in every game with two starts and made 16 receptions for 200 yards and three touchdowns.
With Broncos starter Eric Decker expected to leave the team, Caldwell could become Peyton Manning’s No. 3 wideout behind Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker.
