Broncos cut LenDale White

Denver Broncos Training Camp Getty Images

LenDale White is done in Denver.

White, the former USC star who grew up in Denver, has been released by the Broncos.

White signed with the Broncos last year and never played in a regular-season game after tearing his Achilles tendon in the preseason. He showed up healthy and a relatively fit 230 pounds this year, but he carried just four times for 10 yards in the Broncos’ preseason opener.

A second-round pick of the Titans in 2006, White’s best season came in 2007, when he carried 303 times for 1,110 yards and seven touchdowns.

    Camp fodder.

  3. simplesimon1 says: Aug 16, 2011 12:05 PM

    Lions should sign him just to be the short yardage back.

  4. 4evrnyt says: Aug 16, 2011 12:06 PM

    LenWhale to Houston?

  5. geauxjay says: Aug 16, 2011 12:07 PM

    Another failure from that media-proclaimed Greatest Team of All Time.

    With no BCS national championships.

  6. chitownmike says: Aug 16, 2011 12:07 PM

    Another 06 cheater USC player bites the dust……(see: Leinart, Matt and Bush, Reggie)…..karma…………..

  9. nomoreseasontix says: Aug 16, 2011 12:11 PM

    Done. RBs are almost a dime a dozen these days.

  10. 3octaveFart says: Aug 16, 2011 12:11 PM

    It’s just been one turd sandwich after another since you stomped on that “Towel”, huh LenDale?
    Ask Houshmandzadeh. He knows too.

  11. paulbrownsrevenge says: Aug 16, 2011 12:11 PM

    He’s useless, who cares?

  12. readysethike says: Aug 16, 2011 12:12 PM

    wow, so much potential…with his resume he can be a Bengal now

    Bush decided to leave New Orleans, he wasn’t cut, and he got a Superbowl ring while he was there, hardly a fitting comparison to the other two.

  20. mikeb233 says: Aug 16, 2011 12:25 PM

    Now he can drink all the tequila he wants.

  21. pilot2011 says: Aug 16, 2011 12:26 PM

    didn’t he trademark “smash and dash” or something like that… lol dude Dwill and Stew are still smashin and dashin where it all began… You and dingleberry did it for one year.

    Let the competition start between Willis McGahee and Knowshown Moreno.

  24. 1standlong says: Aug 16, 2011 12:33 PM

    Another example of why if I was a young college recruit who could pick between playing RB or another position in school, I would definitely choose another position. As someone else said, for the most part, RBs are a dime a dozen these days and there are far less of them on the field than there are WRs, LBs, DBs…

    The curse of the Terrible Towel continues………

  27. thephantomstranger says: Aug 16, 2011 12:36 PM

    Who knew he was still in the league?

  28. packerjer says: Aug 16, 2011 12:39 PM

    I gotta be honest. I thought he was out of the league a couple years ago. I had no idea he was still on someone’s roster.

  29. paulbrownsrevenge says: Aug 16, 2011 12:40 PM

    He reminds me of this fat kid that I played backyard football with as a kid. He always wanted the ball, so we let him run it, and everyone just beat the piss outta him. Then he’d cry, and we’d all be like “yea Hamface! you can’t tote the rock”

  30. trbowman says: Aug 16, 2011 12:44 PM

    Jeremiah Johnson >>>>>>>>>>>

  31. tharealest0431 says: Aug 16, 2011 12:48 PM

    ever since he stomped on the terrible towel his career has gone to hell. ha this bum got what he deserved!

  32. sharkcatcher says: Aug 16, 2011 12:54 PM

    Ya’ll keep calling him fat when he can most likely kick most of your skinny pencil neck geeks asses.

  33. Broncofanatic7 says: Aug 16, 2011 12:58 PM

    Jeremiah Johnson is RAW! He’s gonna make a name for himself soon!

  34. dgforreal says: Aug 16, 2011 12:58 PM

    I can imagine the whole city of Denver doing the Lendale White dance upon hearing this news.

  35. laxer37 says: Aug 16, 2011 1:01 PM

    Two people stepped on the Terrible Towell during a game against the Steelers.

    Lendale and Houshmandzadah.

    Both careers went in the tank right afterward.

    Just sayin’…

  36. seabreezes51 says: Aug 16, 2011 1:01 PM

    Gotta wonder how some of these guys don’t realize that this chance doesn’t last.

  37. ndgarretjax says: Aug 16, 2011 1:05 PM

    Next headline:

    “RBs Knowshon Moreno, Willis McGahee and Lance Ball out for year; Broncos bring back LenDale White”

    it’d be like 2008 all over again…

    I think it was 2008 where they lost like 6 running backs? Correct me if I’m wrong..

  38. jsrdc says: Aug 16, 2011 1:08 PM

    I hear Detroit is still possibly in the market for a RB – Lendale could be a good GL back. Maybe Houston since their runners are dropping like flies. Good luck, Lendale.

  39. football58 says: Aug 16, 2011 1:15 PM

    Funny all the tub of lard and whale jokes on here, I bet most of the people making those jokes are tubs of lard themselves.

  40. scoops1 says: Aug 16, 2011 1:18 PM

    why hasn’t ESPN picked him up

    a lot more “karma” is due, my friend.

    Since 1959, the Trojans have won the conference championship 18 times and tied for the title on 6 other occasions. USC has the nation’s best bowl winning percentage (.660) among the 65 schools which have made at least 10 bowl appearances and its 30 Rose Bowl appearances is an all-time best.

    So? The Packers beat them in the Super Bowl. The Cards NEARLY beat them in the Super Bowl
    and the Seahawks SHOULD HAVE beat them in the Super Bowl

  44. approachingnormalcy says: Aug 16, 2011 1:28 PM

    Its never wise to stomp on the terrible towell.

  45. mwcarolina says: Aug 16, 2011 1:29 PM

    he isnt a bad player, just isnt good. a team that needs a backup should take a shot at him. i would say Washington, but Royster, Halu, Torian and Hightower is enough, so i say either Miami (team him up with Bush and Thomas), Jacksonville(spell Jones-Drew), Packers or Lions. those 4 teams should look into it, but honestly, i would be surprised if he finds a job this year.

  46. 90sniners says: Aug 16, 2011 1:31 PM

    This is how Cedric Benson’s career started out. Out of shape, getting in trouble, bad attitude, etc. Now look at him, he committed himself and is now a starting back in this league. I can see LenDale following that same path if/when he matures and starts taking the game serious again. He has too much talent to not have a role on some team.

  47. holeinone09 says: Aug 16, 2011 2:13 PM

    tatum064, what does your post about who won Super Bowls have to do with Lendale White (ie the subject of THIS thread)? Some here, and rightly so, mentioned what happened after he tramped on the Terrible Towel. Can you refute it? No? Then keep on topic, thanks. Also, your “woulda shoulda coulda” doesn’t buy you a cup of coffee, so please stop cryin as well.

    GO STEELERS!!

    LenDale White is done.

  50. jackfnburton says: Aug 16, 2011 2:39 PM

    I don’t understand. What does this have to do with Tim Tebow?

    Tim Tebow, Tim Tebow, Tim Tebow. Also, Tim Tebow. In other news, Tim Tebow. Coming up, Tim Tebow.

    Peyton Manning’s neck surgery, and how it affects Tim Tebow. Next up. Stay tuned.

    Tank Johnson released, should Tim Tebow start? Coming up next.

    Tim Tebow has lunch, eats more than Kyle Orton. What does this mean? Our experts debate, with lots of shouting. After the commercial.

    Sorry, just working on my sports journalism degree. Don’t mind me.

  51. jackfnburton says: Aug 16, 2011 2:39 PM

    Next up, Tim Tebow. Plus, lots of guys say “In this league” for no reason. Stay tuned!

    Tip of the cap to the Pack. As for the “nearly” and “should have”, that sounds like excuses made by guys on the wrong end the the final score.

    Thanks for the history lesson…All I know is that the vacant USC national title when all three of those bums were there…and Reggie Bush had very little to do with NO winning the SB….have fun with your USC program in shambles with Kiffin….let me know how that works out with your history lesson in a few years…….

  55. mrbluedevil04 says: Aug 16, 2011 3:17 PM

    Now he can go join Pete Carroll and Matt Leinart in Seattle

    When told of the news a devastated White pulled out his trusty bottle of Patron and started chugging

    Hes Roy Nelson fat, in other news Tim Tebow can’t play qb. stay tuned..

  58. klunge says: Aug 16, 2011 3:45 PM

    Wow, with all the bad luck LenDale is having, you’d think he’d stepped on a terrible towel or something!!! Maybe some bitter, pouty, overly sensitive Steeler fans could come in here and confirm if such a sacreligious thing ever happened.

  59. steelnucs says: Aug 16, 2011 4:31 PM

    He’ll be fine – I hear the Metlife blimp is going to be out of commission for a little while and needs a backup for the upcoming season.

  60. antalicus says: Aug 16, 2011 5:17 PM

    His wiki page lists him as 235 yet his photo looks like hes 335.
