Default Broncos agree to 2 year deal with LaMont Jordan

Hey guys, just found out the Broncos have agreed to a two-year deal with LaMont Jordan. I was told $2.5 million over the deal.

At least this year if we lose 7 running backs we'll still have like 5 left.

Goal line guy in the style of a Patriots RB. And he must have come at the right price too.

I thought we might re-sign Pittman. Not anymore......

This signing doesn't move me one way or the other. We'll see how he does.

Yea, I don't understand what happened. I thought JJ was a better back, maybe Jordan was just cheaper

You get the sense that Hillis might end up on the trading block.

YUCk, Jesus, Hillis brings more to the table than this washup. Just keep bringing in average guys to compete with the average guys already on the roster is stupid. I'd rather they go get someone young that has a future.

No, I get the sense that any one of these guys could end up on IR, just like last year's crop, since they are all paper frail, so they are trying to stock up. Jordan and Buckhalter have both been on Turner's wish list forever. This is just us taking the oppertunity to grab them and see if they can contribute.

Maybe, but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a Hillis/Buckhalter/Jordan RBBC. Because Hillis can double as a FB, and McDaniels rarely uses the spot - in addition to Peyton only having a 7th round pick's salary - he might have a chance to stick. Hillis has great pass catching skills and some great potential as a blocker too. Hopefully he sticks around because he seems to be the type of versatile, tough team-first guy that is to define the new Denver Broncos.

I stated earlier in another thread that I'm getting the feeling Hillis will never be utilized the way I had envisioned.

Hope I'm wrong. Didn't one of the Goodman's say he had the best hands they had ever seen?

If he is, I'm sure it's because McDaniels is trying to further step on Cutler and put him in his place, right TJ? j/k

I don't know why we can't just have Hillis as our 20-25 carries a game guy, but apparently people who know a lot more than I do think an H-Back/Dallas Clark type is more of the role Hillis fits best.

With the 'Patriot Way' loving pass receiving backs, I can't see any way how Hillis won't be a big part of the offense next year.

I'm fine with this. Depth, low risk and experience. He'll probably take his turn getting banged up, but they all will.

JJ is totally worthless. Softest running back in the game. I'm thrilled that deal fell through.

Good signing. He can catch passes out the backfield. I think one year he lead Oakland with the most rec. Sorry I find it funny the RB is the leading reciever. He also be good in goalline.
