The Broncos have signed WR Jason Hill, providing more depth at a position of need for the team. The news was first reported by PFW correspondent Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post.

Hill started 10 games for the Jaguars last season, hauling in 25 receptions for 367 yards. However he was released on Nov. 30, 2011, a day after the team fired head coach Jack Del Rio. Del Rio is now the defensive coordinator in Denver and he likely had a strong voice in the team's decision to sign the receiver.

The way we see it

With only two established receivers under contract — Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker — wideout was a position the Broncos had to address this offseason in an effort to make life easier for QB Tim Tebow. While Hill is hardly a top target, he does give the team some depth at the position. It remains to be seen if the team will re-sign WR Eddie Royal.
