ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos have found a new target for Peyton Manning, agreeing to a two-year deal with Pro Bowl receiver Wes Welker.

Broncos boss John Elway announced the move through his Twitter account on Wednesday. Said Elway: "Excited to have Wes join the Broncos. His production & toughness will be a great asset!"

Welker is the premier slot receiver in the league, catching 118 passes for 1,354 yards and six TDs last season. He's developed quite a rapport with Tom Brady during his time with the Patriots. The Broncos are banking the same kind of relationship can develop between Manning and Welker.

Earlier in the day, Denver agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent linebacker Stewart Bradley, who played last season for Arizona.
