Re-Signing Andre Caldwell Could Be A Huge Risk For Denver Broncos

Denver Broncos Andre Caldwell Eric Decker

It looks as if Eric Decker‘s future could be decided very soon.

The Denver Broncos have decided to re-sign Andre Caldwell, who was the Broncos’ fourth wideout behind Decker, Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker. Caldwell finished the 2013 campaign with 200 yards receiving and three touchdowns.

This move proves that the Broncos are ready to see what the wideout can bring to the table. Caldwell’s numbers do not exactly appear to be worthy of a second wide receiver who pairs up with Thomas. There are more players out there in free agency that could be better suited for the Broncos as a second wideout, so this re-signing could be risky.

There is some upside to Caldwell that gives him an edge over Decker, and that is his ability to catch the ball. His hands are better than Decker’s and he has an eye for the ball. This season, fans saw Decker drop many passes that could have kept the drive going or could have scored. Another issue I could see with the re-signing of Caldwell  is the issue of keeping the offense together.

The Broncos organization has done a tremendous job having the key players on offense to make them a strong unit year in and out. If they decide to let Decker walk and re-sign Caldwell, this could pose a minor issue as the team will have to get Caldwell to gel with the offense a bit more than he is used to. It would be in the best interest for the Broncos to keep the offense the way it is.

Caldwell is a good player and still has the potential to have a breakout year. It could just come as a huge risk to an offense that set multiple records last year. Why fix something that isn’t broken?
