Schefter: Fargas deal with Broncos likely

August, 10, 2010
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Denver Broncos are not done collecting veteran running backs.

This time they are looking at a former division foe:

Schefter reports that former Oakland Raiders running back Justin Fargas will take a physical for the Broncos on Tuesday and a contract is likely. Fargas was cut by Oakland in March. He had knee trouble and that’s why teams were staying away from him. Perhaps he’s now ready to pass a physical.

Denver has been looking for rushing help this camp. It signed LenDale White last week. White, who is currently banged up, is facing a four-game NFL suspension to start the season. If he’s signed, Fargas could vie for short-yardage work.

He was effective early in his Oakland career and he is bruiser. But the game has taken a toll on him in recent seasons. Denver is thin at running back. Starter Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) and Correll Buckhalter (back) are out. The team expects both back sometime this month.
