The Denver Broncos have signed free-agent wide receiver David Terrell to a one-year contract.

Terrell (6-foot-3, 212 pounds), is entering his sixth NFL season and begins his second stint with the Broncos, whom he played for during the 2005 season. He spent the 2006 campaign out of the NFL after Denver released him Sept. 2.

Selected by Chicago in the first round (eighth overall) of the 2001 NFL Draft from the University of Michigan, Terrell spent his first four seasons with the Bears before signing with New England as a free agent on April 5, 2005. After the Patriots released him on Sept. 3, 2005, Terrell joined the Broncos as a free agent on Sept. 7, 2005, and saw his lone game action that year in Denver?s regular-season finale at San Diego (Dec. 31).

Terrell, 28, has totaled 128 career receptions for 1,602 yards (12.5 avg.) with nine touchdowns in 54 career regular-season games (29 starts).

In 2004, he led Chicago in receiving yards by posting a career-high 699 yards on 42 catches (16.6 avg.) with one touchdown in 16 regular-season games (15 starts). Terrell, who has played all 16 games in three of his four seasons with the Bears, added a career-best 43 receptions for Chicago in 2003.

The first wide receiver selected in the 2001 NFL Draft, Terrell recorded the best rookie season for a Chicago wide receiver since Willie Gault in 1983. He ranked third on the Bears in catches (34) and receiving yards (415) while placing second in touchdown receptions (4) as a first-year player in 2001.

Terrell was a two-time first-team All-Big Ten Conference selection at the University of Michigan and finished his career ranked second in school history in receptions (152) and third in receiving yards (2,317). He was a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award (nation?s best receiver) and a consensus All-American as a junior, his final year at Michigan, after setting a school single-season record with 1,130 receiving yards.

A USA Today first-team All-American at Huguenot High School in Richmond, Va., David Terrell was born March 13, 1979, in Richmond, Va.
