Broncos add depth to the running back position.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Denver Broncos have claimed former Baltimore Ravens running back Justin Forsett off waivers today.

With backup running back Kapri Bibbs likely out for Sunday's game against the Titans, Forsett will give the Broncos some depth and speed at the running back position.

Kubiak had Forsett in Baltimore while he was the Offensive Coordinator there in 2014 and Forsett had a career year in Kubiak's offense. So the fit makes sense and hopefully he can have similar results with the Broncos in the upcoming games.

In 2014, Forsett totaled 1,266 yards for 8 touchdowns. He averaged an impressive 5.4 yards per carry and also added 44 receptions for 263 yards for the Baltimore Ravens. After Kubiak left Baltimore to be the Denver Broncos Head Coach, he returned to his career norms.

Forsett was waived by the Ravens earlier this year and was claimed by the Detriot Lions and played two games before getting waived by them earlier last week. So now he will provide the Broncos with some depth in the backfield.

I'd expect to see rookie Devontae Booker to get the start once again this Sunday against the Titans, but I believe we'll see a healthy dose of Forsett as well.
