The Denver Broncos and tight end James Casey have agreed to a one-year contract, the team announced on Saturday.

Casey spent his last two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and previously played four seasons with the Houston Texans under Gary Kubiak, who was hired as Denver's head coach in January.

Over 16 games last season, Casey, 30, caught three passes for 59 yards and two touchdowns. In March, the Broncos signed Owen Daniels, another tight end who has played under Kubiak.

Last season the Broncos went 12-4 and finished in first place in the AFC West before falling to the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round of the playoffs.
