ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - New Broncos coach Josh McDaniels keeps adding former New England Patriots to his roster in Denver. He signed free agent running back Lamont Jordan on Wednesday.
Jordan is a ninth-year back who spent last season in New England after stints with the Oakland Raiders and New York Jets, who drafted him in the second round in 2001 from the University of Maryland.
McDaniels, who replaced Mike Shanahan this year after serving as the Patriots' offensive coordinator, also has lured long-snapper Lonie Paxton and wide receiver Jabar Gaffney from New England to Denver.
He also had talks with the Patriots about quarterback Matt Cassel before he was traded to Kansas City.
Last year, Jordan rushed 80 times for 363 yards and four TDs. He's rushed for 3,648 yards and 28 touchdowns in his career. He's also accumulated 1,301 yards receiving with three TDs.
