Broncos re-signed WR Andre Caldwell to a two-year contract.
According to Profootballtalk, the deal is worth a max of $3.45 million. Caldwell's 2014 base salary is likely in the neighborhood of $1 million. A six-year veteran, Caldwell caught just 16 passes last season. Even if Eric Decker walks, Caldwell shouldn't see a major uptick in production. Mar 11 - 3:08 PM

Andre Caldwell was held without a catch in Super Bowl 48.

The Broncos relied on three-receiver and two-tight end sets against Seattle, so fourth wideout Caldwell was limited to special teams. An impending free agent, Caldwell won't be a hot commodity on the open market. Turning 29 in April, the journeyman finished the 2013 regular season with 16 catches for 200 yards and three TDs.
Feb 2 - 10:40 PM

Andre Caldwell caught one pass for 11 yards in Denver's AFC Championship game win over New England.

Caldwell played only in four-receiver packages, coming off the bench behind Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, and Wes Welker. His lone catch came with about one minute left in the first half, helping to set up Matt Prater's second field goal. Caldwell now has two catches for 26 yards through two playoff games.

Andre Caldwell caught one pass for 15 yards in Denver's Divisional Round win over San Diego.

Playing in sub-package sets, fourth receiver Caldwell caught a 15-yard pass on Denver's opening drive. He wasn't heard from again. Caldwell will continue to be a lightly used reserve when the Broncos host the Patriots.
Jan 12 - 8:23 PM

Andre Caldwell had three catches for 42 yards in Week 17 against the Raiders.

Caldwell got the majority of his yardage in the second half after the Broncos rested their starters. He'll go back to being the No. 4 receiver with Wes Welker (concussion) fully expected to be cleared for the playoffs. Caldwell finishes the 2013 season with 16 catches for 200 yards and three touchdowns.

Andre Caldwell was held to two catches for 12 yards in Denver's Week 16 win over the Texans.

The Broncos used more two-tight end sets with Jacob Tamme and Julius Thomas in this one, rather than flooding the field with wideouts. Caldwell turned in a dud. Expect him to get more playing time in the regular season finale against Oakland, especially if the AFC West champs rest their starters.

Andre Caldwell is tentatively expected to be the Broncos third receiver again Sunday.

Wes Welker has not been medically cleared to even practice yet, so the Broncos are prepping Caldwell for a similar role he had in Week 15. On that night, he played on 68.5 percent of the snaps and recorded a 6/59/2 line. "I thought Bubba Caldwell played really well," Peyton Manning said. "Great route on that first touchdown, did a great job getting in the end zone on a play he hasn't [worked] that much, so that's a good job knowing what to do, being in his playbook. We'll count on him this week if he has to play." Caldwell will be a risky WR3 because of all the weapons in the Broncos' offense, but he'll have tons of scoring upside thanks to Manning.

Andre Caldwell played on 37-of-54 snaps (68.5 percent) in the Week 15 loss to the Chargers.

Instead of going back to Jacob Tamme (nine snaps) as their slot man, the Broncos chose to roll with three-wide sets featuring Caldwell. It resulted in a 6/59/2 performance. Considering how well Caldwell played, it's likely Denver would install a similar game plan if Wes Welker (concussion) sits out again. The Broncos face the 2-12 Texans on Sunday and the Slot Machine's status remains murky. He didn't practice Monday.

Filling in for Wes Welker in the slot, Broncos WR Andre Caldwell caught six passes for 59 yards and two touchdowns in Denver's Week 15 loss to the Chargers.

Pre-game speculation had either TE Jacob Tamme or TE Virgil Green picking up Welker's slack, but instead it was Caldwell, who drew a team-leading 10 targets. His scores were the Broncos' only two touchdowns of the night, and his first since Week 1. It was a random, albeit solid, effort for a player who entered Week 15 with all of five catches. Caldwell stepped up when his team needed him, but with Welker likely returning for Week 16, he remains miles from fantasy relevance.

Broncos WR Andre Caldwell caught a 28-yard touchdown in Denver's Week 1 win over the Ravens.

It was his only target. As's Gregg Rosenthal observed, Caldwell only appeared to be in the game because Demaryius Thomas was gassed. He might not take the field in Week 2.

Broncos WR Andre Caldwell "took it personal" that he wasn't invited to catch passes from Peyton Manning at Duke University last week.

"No invite to Duke to run routes and catch passes," Caldwell tweeted. "I took it personal." Manning invited his top three receivers -- Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas, and Eric Decker -- and said there wasn't enough space to invite everyone. Caldwell, 28, caught one pass in eight games for Denver last season.

Broncos WR Andre Caldwell was deactivated for Week 1.

Caldwell suffered "badly battered" ribs in Denver's second preseason game and has done little since. Meanwhile, Brandon Stokley has run away with the Broncos' slot receiver job. When Caldwell returns, he may only play special teams.

X-rays showed no broken ribs for Broncos WR Andre Caldwell after he left Saturday's preseason game versus the Seahawks in the third quarter.

Caldwell ripped off his helmet in pain after taking a shot to the kidney from Seahawks safety Chris Maragos. Caldwell was expected to push for the third receiver job, but he's clearly behind Brandon Stokley, who led the first-team offense with 41 yards on three catches. Caldwell does, however, seem to have taken over as the primary kickoff returner with Matthew Willis on punts.

The Denver Post expects Andre Caldwell to "push hard for prime playing time" at wide receiver this season.

Caldwell showed a "quick rapport" with Peyton Manning and the coaching staff is believed to be fond of his speed. Caldwell won't push starters Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, but he should be the favorite for the No. 3 role.

Broncos signed WR Andre Caldwell, formerly of the Bengals.

It's a two-year deal, per Caldwell ran a 4.37 at 6-foot-1, 209 at the 2008 Combine, but he doesn't play nearly that fast. His career yards-per-catch average is 9.5. In Denver, Caldwell figures to compete for third receiver duties and play on special teams. He is a willing blocker, and can play both the Z (flanker) and slot positions on offense. With Peyton Manning at the helm, it's certainly not out of the question that Caldwell will come into 2012 fantasy value.
