The Broncos have agreed on a two-year deal for free-agent RB LaMont Jordan, according to FOX 31 in Denver.
Jordan rushed for 363 yards and four touchdowns for the Patriots in 2008 under current Broncos coach Josh McDaniels, who was New England’s offensive coordinator last season.
The Broncos have been active in free agency and even stirring up some noise with trade talks. Jordan will join RB Correll Buckhalter, who previously signed a deal with the Broncos. The team appeared to have a deal completed with RB J.J. Arrington earlier this week, but negotiations hit a snag. That deal figures to be off the table.
By pairing Buckhalter and Jordan, McDaniels appears to be following in the Mike Shanahan mold of frustrating fantasy football owners with the dreaded running-back-by-committee.
