|Report: Broncos, Jordan agree on deal||03.04.09 at 11:34 am ET|
According to KDVR-TV in Denver, the Broncos have reached an agreement on a two-year deal with running back LaMont Jordan with $2.5 million. Their story can be found here.
Jordan spent the 2008 season with New England as part of a running back rotation that included Laurence Maroney, Sammy Morris, Kevin Faulk and BenJarvus Green-Ellis, and finished with 363 yards and four touchdowns in eight games.
But the recent addition of free agent running back Fred Taylor meant it was likely at least one of the incumbent backs would be retained, and Jordan appeared to be the odd man out — according to reports, he had made a visit with the Cardinals earlier in the week before landing with Denver. Jordan is the third New England free agent to sign with the Broncos and new head coach Josh McDaniels this offseason — the former New England offensive coordinator also inked long snapper Lonie Paxton and wide receiver Jabar Gaffney at the start of free agency.
The 30-year-old Jordan has spent eight years in the National Football League. He was drafted by the Jets in 2001 out of Maryland and spent four seasons in the Meadowlands. He then had three seasons in Oakland — and had a career-best year in 2005 with the Raiders, rushing for 1,025 yards — before being released by the Raiders last July. In his career, he has 3,648 career rushing yards and 28 touchdowns.
