The Denver Broncos have signed former Oakland Raiders RB Justin Fargas.
Fargas, who recently turned 30, was drafted by the Oakland Raiders 96th overall out of USC.
At 6-foot-1 and 220 pounds, Fargas is a bigger back who is surprisingly fast. In his seven year career with the Raiders, Fargas rushed for 3,369 yards on 827 carries with 10 touchdowns, and he averaged 4.1 yards per carry over that time frame.
This is a solid move by the Broncos; they got another big back to help on third down situations. Also, Fargas has a chip on his shoulder after being released by the Raiders. I'm sure that he would love to beat them twice a year.
This signing really means that Lendale White is going to have to work extra hard to keep a spot on the roster. White recently went down with an undisclosed leg injury and is already suspended for the first four games of the regular season.
