Denver Broncos Sign RB Justin Fargas


The Denver Broncos have signed running back Justin Fargas, formerly of the Oakland Raiders.

Fargas, 30, was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the third round (96th overall) in the 2003 NFL Draft out of the University of Southern California. 

At 6-foot-1, 220 pounds, Fargas is a bigger back who is also known for his breakaway speed.  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.

For the Broncos, Fargas will add depth to a fragile running back group which has already seen two backs go down in training camp with injury.  Fargas is the second back added by the Broncos in the last week, joining newly acquired LenDale White in the backfield.

This is a solid sign by the Broncos, who get a guy in Fargas that has played some of his best games against or in Denver.  The speedster out of USC will add some nice competition to the Broncos' backfield while Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter heal from injuries, and is not a bad "on call" running back for your team to have.
