Broncos sign veteran TE James Casey

Englewood, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - The Denver Broncos agreed to terms on a one-year contract Saturday with veteran tight end James Casey.

Casey, 30, spent the past two years with the Philadelphia Eagles, catching three passes for 59 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games last season.

He has 72 career receptions for 842 yards and six touchdowns in 92 career NFL games with Houston and Philadelphia, including 23 starts.

The move reunites Casey with new Denver head coach Gary Kubiak, who was the head coach of the Texans during Casey's four seasons in Houston.

Star tight end Julius Thomas, who made the Pro Bowl for Denver in each of the last two seasons, signed with Jacksonville last month.
