Career


Baltimore Ravens
Stokley was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens out of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in the fourth round (105th pick overall) of the 1999 NFL Draft. Stokley won a championship ring in Super Bowl XXXV as a member of the Ravens. In the game, he caught 3 passes for 52 yards, including a 38-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter.

Indianapolis Colts
In 2003 Stokley signed with the Indianapolis Colts. On December 26, 2004, Stokley received the record-breaking 21-yard touchdown pass for Peyton Manning in the hunt to break Dan Marino's record of 48 touchdown passes in a season. That year, he had a breakthrough season with 68 passes caught for 1,077 yards and 10 touchdowns and an average of 15.8 yards per catch. Furthermore, the TD catch made the 2004 Colts the first NFL team to have three WRs with 1000 receiving yards and 10 TDs or more in a season, the other two being Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison. The next two seasons of Stokley's career were marred by various injuries. After he participated in only four games of the 2006 season, the Indianapolis Colts terminated his contract on March 1, 2007.

Denver Broncos
Stokley signed with the Denver Broncos on March 14. On December 7, 2007, he signed a 3-year extension with the team. In the Broncos' 2009 season opener, with 28 seconds left in the game, he caught a pass intended for Brandon Marshall but tipped by Leon Hall and took it 87 yards in to the end zone for the winning score. At the endzone, he ran six seconds off the clock ensuring a win for the Denver Broncos who at the time, were losing to the Cincinnati Bengals 7-6. With Stokley's touchdown, the final score was 12-7 and the Denver Broncos got their first 2009 regular season win. During a December 27 game at Philadelphia, Stokley was ejected for inadvertently slapping a referee on the hand while expressing his anger that a pass interference penalty was not called.

On September 4, 2010, Stokley was placed on injured reserve by the Broncos.
