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.
