The Denver Broncos and wide receiver Andre Caldwell have agreed on a new deal that will keep him in the Mile High City for the nest two years, according to Pro Football Talk.
WR Andre Caldwell agrees to stay with the Broncos, per league source. Two years, with a max value of $3.45 million.

Caldwell has played the last two seasons in Denver, including making two starts in 2013 when he recorded 16 receptions for 200 yards and three touchdowns. With Eric Decker a free agent and possibly looking to cash in elsewhere, Caldwell could see an expanded role in 2014.
However, keep in mind that he has never had more than 51 receptions, 432 yards or three touchdowns in a single season, so if Decker does leave via free agency, don’t expect Caldwell to magically replicate hid numbers, even with Peyton Manning slinging him the ball.
Caldwell figures to complement the other receivers on the roster as he has done throughout his career rather than step up into a starting role, but this is a very solid move for depth purposes in the very least.
