The Bucs thought they had a deal with undrafted Toledo receiver Eric Page on Saturday night, with the player going as far as announcing the news via Twitter.

But only hours later, Page had changed his mind, declining to sign the deal after agreeing to join the Broncos and quarterback Peyton Manning instead. Denver announced Page among its rookie free agent signings early this morning.

Page, who left after his junior season, caught 125 passes last season for 1,182 yards and 10 touchdowns. He was considered likely to be drafted, some projecting him as a middle-round choice.
