Veteran WR Brandon Stokley Visits Titans

When New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker signed with the Denver Broncos in free agency, veteran Brandon Stokley was unofficially ushered out of Denver.

Welker is 31 and coming off a 118-catch season; Stokley is 36 and coming off a 45-catch season.  Quarterback Peyton Manning has found an upgrade in Welker, but also loses a buddy in Stokley.

Stokley was considering retirement last summer before joining Manning in Denver.  Now a free agent, the Broncos do not appear interested in bringing back the original "Slot Machine".  

With that being the case, Stokley is pursuing other options.  On Tuesday, Stokes visited the Tennesse Titans, according to Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean.  

Another former Bronco, cornerback Tracy Porter, visited the New Orleans Saints earlier this week.  

On a different note, the team announced their offseason workout schedule on Wednesday (via Mile High Report).  The Broncos will begin their nine-week workout program on April 15, concluding on June 13.  

Denver's mandatory minicamp will take place from June 11-13; training camp dates are expected to be announced later this summer.  The 2013 season schedule will be announced on April 16.
