Broncos sign RB LaMont Jordan
The Denver Post
The Broncos continued their unprecedented free-agent buying spree today by signing veteran running back LaMont Jordan to a two-year, $2.5 million contract.
The deal includes a $500,000 signing bonus so make no mistake, Jordan is not here as a look-see for training camp.
Jordan becomes the 10th free agent player signed by the Broncos since Friday and more are coming. The Broncos are visiting today with veteran quarterback Chris Simms, who would become the backup to Jay Cutler.
The team also has a three-year, $4.5 million offer sheet signed with restricted free agent David Anderson of the Houston Texans. Houston has until Friday to either match the Broncos’ offer or work out a trade.
At this rate, Cutler may be the only Broncos player who returns for 2009.

No team has been more active in free agency than the Broncos, although the total contractual commitments to the 11 players, including Anderson, is $94.62 million, or $5.38 million less than the Washington Redskins gave $100 million man Albert Haynesworth.
