The Seahawks unceremoniously cut running back LenDale White during offseason workouts. To make matter worse, White ended up on the wrong end of a four-game suspension.
We assumed that White would serve his time and eventually be signed by the Bengals.
But necessity intervened in Denver, where running backs like Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter have dropped like flies.
Per a league source, White has signed a two-year deal to join the Broncos.
White entered the league in 2006 as a second-round pick of the Titans. But he wore out his welcome in Tennessee, and with Chris Johnson emerging as a star they simply didn’t need him.
But then his college coach, Pete Carroll, decided he didn’t want White, and he has been available for the past couple of months.
White will be able to practice with the Broncos and participate in the preseason. He’ll then leave for the first four weeks of the season.
UPDATE: The Broncos have announced the move, and they’ve also released running back Kolby Smith to create a roster spot for White.
