Brandon Stokley was ready for a reunion, not retirement.
The 14th-year wide receiver rejoined the Denver Broncos -- and old pal Peyton Manning -- this offseason after missing almost all of 2011.
Stokley played in just two games for the New York Giants last year before a strained thigh led to an injury settlement. Instead of helping the Giants win another ring, he spent his winter back home in Castle Rock, Colo., wondering if his NFL career was over.
He kept in shape, and when Manning signed with Denver, the Broncos quickly brought back his sidekick slot receiver who played with the four-time MVP in Indianapolis from 2003-06.
Stokley, who played in Denver from 2007-09, said he's, well, stoked, to be back with the Broncos and Manning.
