LenDale White lands in Denver

NFL_white1.jpgThe Seahawks unceremoniously cut running back LenDale White during offseason workouts.  To make matter worse, White ended up on the wrong end of a four-game suspension.

We assumed that White would serve his time and eventually be signed by the Bengals.

But necessity intervened in Denver, where running backs like Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter have dropped like flies.

Per a league source, White has signed a two-year deal to join the Broncos.

White entered the league in 2006 as a second-round pick of the Titans.  But he wore out his welcome in Tennessee, and with Chris Johnson emerging as a star they simply didn’t need him.

But then his college coach, Pete Carroll, decided he didn’t want White, and he has been available for the past couple of months.

White will be able to practice with the Broncos and participate in the preseason.  He’ll then leave for the first four weeks of the season.

UPDATE:  The Broncos have announced the move, and they’ve also released running back Kolby Smith to create a roster spot for White.

    Very funny regarding having him sign with Bengals.
    I guess if he raped girls, you would have said he would have signed with the Steelers. A mureder would have had him with the Ravens or Colts, and a DUI with the Fins.

    good grief…

  3. bcbiz88 says: Aug 4, 2010 7:08 PM

    Welcome home LenDale!

  4. BroncoBourque says: Aug 4, 2010 7:09 PM

    It is probably a deal for close to the minimum so it is a low risk high reward signing. When you add in that he has to know that this is probably his last chance to make it in the NFL I really don’t see much of a downside to this move.

  5. theycallme_iPod says: Aug 4, 2010 7:12 PM

    hes a good back if he keeps his weight under control…good signing…

  6. Citizen Strange says: Aug 4, 2010 7:12 PM

    First running off Cutler and Marshall, and then picking Tebow in the first round and now signing LenDale White, Josh McDaniels continues to make all the right moves.
    On the bright side, whoever the new Bronco coach is will have a top 5 pick in the 2011 draft.

  7. licavoli says: Aug 4, 2010 7:13 PM

    Denver welcomes a disaster.

  8. Bob Sacamano says: Aug 4, 2010 7:14 PM

    LOL. McDaniels runs Cutler out of town, then Marshall, all for supposed character issues. Then he drafts choir boy Tebow.
    Now he’s signing a guy who’s not only suspended, he’s such a d-bag that his college coach didn’t want him around.
    What a joke.

  9. ejtowne says: Aug 4, 2010 7:19 PM

    Why in the world would Denver take on a RB like White who is due to serve a 4 game suspension? It seems to me that with running backs like Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter dropping like flies, Denver would need/want a RB who will have an instant impact, right? Besides who else do they have on their roster?

  10. In & Out Burger says: Aug 4, 2010 7:19 PM

    I feel like White has gotten a little bit of a raw deal. He has shown he has the potential to be a productive member of a team, at least in goal line situations, and I am glad to see he is getting a chance to prove as much. Obviously it will be a little tougher for him going from a team with a 2000+ yard back to one where the lead back has been injured and the teams QB is not known for making life easier on RBs. But I would guess in a 12 game season (due to his suspension) he will be able to churn out 6-8 TDs.

  11. SF Saints Fan says: Aug 4, 2010 7:21 PM

    Did they use ropes to secure him to the tower like they did with the Hindenberg?

  12. Bwa Ha Ha says: Aug 4, 2010 7:23 PM

    The chips should be properly installed on the shoulder. If White is a real man, he will be a steal for the Broncs

  14. 909RaiderLifer says: Aug 4, 2010 7:27 PM

    Will LenWhale have the cab take him to some quack doctors office to get his pot card, as soon as he lands in Dungver?

  15. magsdad1 says: Aug 4, 2010 7:29 PM

    This makes no sense.

  16. Chiefs2010 says: Aug 4, 2010 7:33 PM

    good pickup

  17. CookieFlash says: Aug 4, 2010 7:34 PM

    No really.
    Are there any stories today NOT about people I DON’T think lead us away from real football.

  18. earlers says: Aug 4, 2010 7:34 PM

    Go Deezy…he can still play.

  19. Nate is Gay for Brady says: Aug 4, 2010 7:37 PM

    LenWhale White?!?!?!
    Coach is fired after this year of destroying a good team.
    And he had a good team when he got there.
    KC, and the Raiders thank them.

  20. pilot08 says: Aug 4, 2010 7:42 PM

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see Toney Baker as their 3rd down back this year.

  21. Cincinnasty says: Aug 4, 2010 7:44 PM

    We assumed that White would serve his time and eventually be signed by the Bengals.
    Florio … Stop being such a douche bag…

  22. ochostinko says: Aug 4, 2010 7:51 PM

    Shut the hell up, Florio. Despite your constant efforts to bash them, the Bengals will do just fine this year without LenDale’s fat ass.

  23. manoleisure says: Aug 4, 2010 7:56 PM

    Maybe Tebow can show him how to run over somebody

  24. dezertdweller says: Aug 4, 2010 7:58 PM

    Next up in the dipshit que… Chris Simms…

  25. MrHumble says: Aug 4, 2010 8:00 PM

    As I said last weekend, the broncos aren’t being truthful about the severity of Moreno’s injury………maybe they should be given the “Favre treatment” for telling a lie!

  26. CanadianVikingFan says: Aug 4, 2010 8:07 PM

    Tim Tebow will block for you, don’t worry, God is on his side.

  27. Dixon29 says: Aug 4, 2010 8:11 PM

    Brady Quinn, Tim Tebow, and now Lendale White. Wow. Fire up the Delorean and get up to 88 mph and redo all of it.

  28. TheOne says: Aug 4, 2010 8:11 PM

    Dumb. Kolby Smith is good and what is Denver going to do if Moreno has to miss some games? White has 2 miss some games already, if Moreno does they are screwed.

  29. humbolt says: Aug 4, 2010 8:11 PM

    The Broncos are loading up for another mid-season collapse.

  30. Blackn'Gold says: Aug 4, 2010 8:12 PM

    Now that was a cheap shot against the Bengals. The AFCN team that is now favored to win it all since they signed T.O.. I’m not making it up.

  31. habibfromnewdehli says: Aug 4, 2010 8:16 PM

    And as soon as Chris Johnson gets injured, the Titans will be feeling even more stupid than they already should.

    Good for him. Colorado has some of the best weed in the country.

  34. Chiefs2010 says: Aug 4, 2010 8:24 PM

    Lendale we hardly knew ye..

  35. rjgreen3 says: Aug 4, 2010 8:25 PM

    he’s a clydesdale not a bronco

  36. JasonW says: Aug 4, 2010 8:31 PM

    Does anyone know how the weed is in Denver?

  37. Drafty says: Aug 4, 2010 8:48 PM

    Pretty sure LenWhale can match NoGain’s yards-per-carry average.
    Maybe he can hang on to the ball, as well.
    Or this might just be yet another desperation move from a team that has had to make a lot of them over the past decade or so.

  38. roland2305 says: Aug 4, 2010 8:49 PM

    Think Denver is starting to wish they didnt give Peyton Hillis away yet?

  39. Kevin C says: Aug 4, 2010 8:51 PM

    AHHHHHH!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! Good luck to the Donkeys. They are going to need it with LenWhale hanging out there. His lazy ass thinks he deserves everything without working for anything. This guy is the definition of “TURD.”

  40. sixburghrules says: Aug 4, 2010 8:55 PM

    So they cut a RB to add Lendale White! Good Move! Lendale was a “barn burner” in Tennessee Denver will be #3 in AFC west this year

  41. yinzburgh says: Aug 4, 2010 9:00 PM

    He’s from Denver but not well liked there….. That should make things interesting!

  42. kosarsmyidol says: Aug 4, 2010 9:02 PM

    I called it when Moreno got hurt. While I’m on a hot streak, my prediction for the Browns is 7 to 9 wins.

  43. comment_submission_error says: Aug 4, 2010 9:23 PM

    Sweet. That’s a real confidence-builder for your ground game, Bronco fan. After he gets back from his 4 week vacation he can back up Tebow on pinball dives. Enjoy.

  44. Hillbilly Jim says: Aug 4, 2010 9:24 PM

    Business for the local IHOP’s in Denver just went up.

  45. intelligent_yinzer says: Aug 4, 2010 9:28 PM

    LenWhale beached in Denver

  46. Rick says: Aug 4, 2010 9:30 PM

    he will be cut at the end of training camp

  47. magsdad1 says: Aug 4, 2010 9:34 PM

    Kolby: Just a hint…..stop fumbling.

  48. cleanface says: Aug 4, 2010 9:35 PM

    Hopefully he landed on McDaniels mouth finally shutting the 1st-team all douche coach up for a bit.

  49. MrHumble says: Aug 4, 2010 9:38 PM

    If you want some posts on this story Florio you should of made the headline read: “Lendale White Tells All About Brett Favre as he lands in Denver”

  50. Cake Or Death says: Aug 4, 2010 9:41 PM

    “LenDale White lands in Denver”
    Awesome. I love the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

  51. Franchise says: Aug 4, 2010 9:45 PM

    A great late pick in fantasy drafts.

  52. PolegoJim says: Aug 4, 2010 9:47 PM

    This could be good. McD could help him with work ethic and he could be an excellent banger up the middle and open up the passing attack for ….. Tim Tebow.

  53. Piro says: Aug 4, 2010 9:53 PM

    Pointless. The Broncos already have a big running back on the roster named Tebow.

  54. Pilehiclown says: Aug 4, 2010 9:54 PM

    Len-fail white a donkey?

  55. samsara76 says: Aug 4, 2010 10:00 PM

    Can’t leave the Bengals alone you Steelers whore.

  56. ijr213 says: Aug 4, 2010 10:29 PM

    So the Broncos trade away Cutler and Marshall because they’re divas and then they sign LenDale White? McDaniels, thy name is hypocrite. I guess you can be a diva if you don’t have talent?
    Another move by McDaniels that makes sense to no one but him and his puppet Brian Xanders.

  57. Cup says: Aug 4, 2010 10:33 PM

    Why would they do this??? If they wanted an overweight, out of shape running back with poor work ethics and off the field problems, Maurice Clarette was just released from prison. Hell, he is younger and less wear and tear on his body too lmao…
    The Broncos have the inside track on him too ;)…
    @ Piro: Ahhhh hahahahah isn’t that the truth. Like I said before Tebow will make a great NFL Fullback….

  58. Cushing Will Kill You says: Aug 4, 2010 10:37 PM

    Unless he landed in Denver after a lay-over in Minnesota, I don’t want to hear about it. Give me more Favre.

  59. FumbleNuts says: Aug 4, 2010 10:39 PM

    “LenDale White lands in Denver”
    Talk about a Rocky Mountain High!

  60. dsheik says: Aug 4, 2010 11:03 PM

    Thats all fine and dandy but has anyone stopped to think what Brett Favre’s opinion is on this?

  61. pakrguru says: Aug 4, 2010 11:58 PM

    LenDale White lands in Denver
    In related news, US Geological Survey reports a 8.3 magnatude quake being felt in the Denver area, coincidentally around the same time as White’s landing. Film at 11.

  62. Gil says: Aug 5, 2010 12:13 AM

    Shiiiettt… This post has been the leading topic for hours…. I’m sure there is more to report than this fat dude finally finding a team to accept his ghetto booty.

  63. Cahill says: Aug 5, 2010 12:43 AM

    Why are a majority of the people who comment on stories do nothing but talk sh*t about whoever the article is about? Don’t you trolls have anything better to do than sit around and bash a player or a team who is obviously more successful and talented than you? Don’t be jealous that LenDale White’s living a much better life than you and still in better shape even when he’s overweight. Now get back in the basement where you trolls belong, just because the sun is down doesn’t mean you should run your mouth.

  64. HOU59FAN says: Aug 5, 2010 4:11 AM

    I thought Tebow was goint to run the ball. Lendale????????????????????????
    Something’s burnin’!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Didn’t know he could fly……………..

  68. sergep says: Aug 5, 2010 2:04 PM

    i bet denver will be fine in the “mile HIGH”.

  69. Brewster says: Aug 5, 2010 3:23 PM

    Well, so much for that hypocritical line of McDaniels about we only want high character guys. Unless of course he decides he doesn’t anymore, which is what this is looking like.
    Josh McDaniels has done more damage to Denver than the last 5 hail storms and tornadoes combined.
    3 to 5 wins this year, maybe.

  70. WarrenMoonGOAT says: Aug 6, 2010 2:24 PM

    Tebow and Lendale in the backfield, i think defenses will be shaking in their boots
