Andre Caldwell
Broncos' Andre Caldwell: Totals 22 yards in Super Bowl 50
Andre Caldwell, WR, DEN
2/9/2016
News: Caldwell caught his lone target in Sunday's victory over the Panthers for 22 yards.

Caldwell's sideline catch came on the Broncos' opening drive and helped set up a field goal lead that they never relinquished. Caldwell caught just 10 passes in 14 games in 2015, but recorded a reception in each of Denver's three playoff matchups. They may be his last as a Bronco. With Cody Latimer already on the books for 2016 and younger options to retain in free agency including Bennie Fowler and Jordan Norwood, Caldwell may be the odd man out.

David Nelson
Steelers' David Nelson: Released by Steelers
David Nelson, WR, PIT
2/9/2016
News: Nelson was released by the Steelers on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

The veteran wideout finished the season on IR and did not play a single snap for the Steelers prior to his release. It's unclear at this point if a team will take a flier on the oft-injured Nelson given that he's played in all of 18 games over the past three seasons, but his 6-foot-5 frame could be intriguing enough for a team to give him a shot in training camp.

Kain Colter
Rams' Kain Colter: Signs with Rams
Kain Colter, WR, MIN
2/9/2016
News: Colter was signed by the Rams on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

The versatile product out of Northwestern was most recently a member of the Vikings' practice squad during a 2014 season and was listed as a wide receiver. Whether the Rams keep him at receiver or try to develop him as a backup quarterback remains to be seen, but he should be considered a long shot to land on the 53-man roster at this time.

Marvin Jones
Bengals' Marvin Jones: Won't take hometown discount
Marvin Jones, WR, CIN
2/9/2016
News: Jones said he would like to re-sign with the Bengals but also noted that he won't take a hometown discount, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Jones missed all of 2014 with a foot injury, but he was productive in both 2013 and 2015 despite playing a complementary role in the Bengals offense. He's one of the top free agents at his position, and with the Cincinnati passing game likely to revolve around A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert for the foreseeable future, Jones can probably find a better contract elsewhere.

Riley Cooper
Riley Cooper: Released by Eagles
Riley Cooper, WR, PHI
2/8/2016
News: Cooper was released by the Eagles on Monday.

Cooper tallied just 21 catches and 327 receiving yards last season, so the Eagles decided to remove him from the roster in a cost-cutting move. He figures to hook on with a new team at some point, but coming off his sub-par 2015 season, it's unlikely he will play a prominent role in the offense wherever he winds up.

Demaryius Thomas
Broncos' Demaryius Thomas: Totals eight yards receiving in Super Bowl victory
Demaryius Thomas, WR, DEN
2/8/2016
News: Thomas secured one of six targets for eight yards in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl victory over the Panthers.

The 28-year-old barely made his presence felt on the season's biggest stage, suffering a decrease in receptions for the third straight postseason game. Thomas' tough afternoon was a combination of the Josh Norman's tight coverage in the secondary and a lack of time for Peyton Manning on several occasions. He also took a hard hit from Luke Kuechly in the first quarter that may have had a lingering effect on the receiver the rest of the game. Thomas was able to draw a key fourth quarter third-down pass interference penalty in the end zone on Norman that gave Denver new life, and eventually led to C.J. Anderson's decisive one-yard touchdown. The six-year veteran will head into the offseason with more questions than usual following a pedestrian second half of the 2015 campaign, but still figures to slot in as Denver's No. 1 receiver to start the 2016 season.

Emmanuel Sanders
Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Totals 83 yards receiving in Super Bowl victory
Emmanuel Sanders, WR, DEN
2/8/2016
News: Sanders secured six of eight targets for 83 yards in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl victory over the Panthers.

The 28-year-old led Denver in targets and receptions, taking advantage of the fact that Josh Norman's attention was focused primarily on Demaryius Thomas. Sanders made several key receptions throughout the game, and was the Denver's leading receiver in the postseason with 16 receptions on 24 targets for 230 yards. With Thomas struggling late in the regular season and postseason, Sanders was arguably the more effective of the two over the second half of the 2015 campaign. Coming off a second consecutive 1,000-yard season, he figures to once again serve as a centerpiece of Denver's offensive attack next season.

Jerricho Cotchery
Panthers' Jerricho Cotchery: Totals 17 yards receiving in Super Bowl loss
Jerricho Cotchery, WR, CAR
2/7/2016
News: Cotchery secured two of five targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl loss to the Broncos.

The veteran had some trouble hanging on to the ball, failing to come down with a couple of contested passes against a swarming Broncos secondary. The 12-year veteran nevertheless was a productive component of the Panthers offense in 2015, grabbing 39 receptions (26 of which went for first downs) for 485 yards and three touchdowns as one of Cam Newton's most trusted move-the-chain targets. While his 80-plus reception years are in the rearview mirror, Cotchery's character in the locker room and savvy on the field figure to earn him a spot on an NFL roster in 2016.

Analysis: 

Devin Funchess
Panthers' Devin Funchess: Totals 40 yards receiving in Super Bowl loss
Devin Funchess, WR, CAR
2/7/2016
News: Funchess secured two of five targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl loss to the Broncos.

The Michigan product's highlight of the game was a key 24-yard grab on third down late in the second quarter, helping to extend a Panthers drive that ultimately ended at the Denver 45-yard line as the half came to a close. Funchess was only able to tally one other reception despite fellow receiver Corey Brown's third-quarter exit with a concussion. Despite a slow start to his rookie campaign, Funchess came on to record 24 receptions and five touchdowns over the last nine weeks of the regular season, and he and the returning Kelvin Benjamin (knee) will serve as a pair of formidable targets for Cam Newton in 2016.

Analysis: 

Ted Ginn
Panthers' Ted Ginn: Tallies 74 yards receiving in Super Bowl loss
Ted Ginn, WR, CAR
2/7/2016
News: Ginn secured four of 10 targets for 74 yards in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl loss to the Broncos. He also netted two yards on three punt returns.

The 30-year-old was unable to convert many of his game-high 10 targets due to a suffocating Broncos defense, but did secure a game-long 45-yard pass from Cam Newton on the second play of the third quarter. The Broncos were also careful to not allow Ginn many opportunities to do some of his trademark damage on punt returns, limiting him to just two yards on the three opportunities he did have on special teams. Despite difficulties hanging on to the ball at times throughout 2015, Ginn certainly proved to be serviceable and at times dynamic big-play threat. He hauled in 44 receptions for 739 yards and a career-high 10 touchdowns during the campaign, serving as a particularly valuable weapon in the season-long absence of Kelvin Benjamin (knee).
