Report: Denver dumps LenDale White
By Bill Williamson
The Denver Broncos have cut running back LenDale White, according to the Denver Post.
White, a Denver native, was signed by the Broncos last year, but he missed the entire year with an injury. He wasn’t going to be counted on as anything more than a backup, and I’m sure Denver is looking for youth behind Knowshon Moreno and Willis McGahee.
This move is a good sign for Jeremiah Johnson. The second-year Oregon product is making a big push to make the 53-man roster. He played well in the preseason opener at Dallas.
In other Denver notes Tuesday:
A Denver columnist is calling for the Broncos to cut cornerback Perrish Cox. He is going to trial in October on sexual assault charges. He faces a potential life sentence if he is found guilty.
Cincinnati released veteran tackle Tank Johnson. The Broncos could be in the market for a defensive tackle because of the injuries to Ty Warren and Marcus Thomas. Both players were hurt Monday, and Warren could be out for quite some time with a triceps injury.
