The Denver Broncos announced Saturday that they’ve signed veteran TE James Casey to a one-year contract.

The Eagles released Casey back in February in a move that freed up $4 million in available cap space. He reportedly met with the Bengals, Redskins, Cardinals, Broncos, Browns, Titans and Jaguars in the past few months.
The Broncos are an obvious fit for Casey given that he spent time working with new Broncos HC Gary Kubiak while they were in Houston, and the Denver could use some extra help at tight end.
Casey, 30, appeared in all 16 games and caught three passes for 59 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 173 snaps last year to go along with a solid rating as a run-blocker.
