ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Lamont Jordan is ready to reward coach Josh McDaniels for taking a chance of him even though he was overweight and out of shape this winter.
Jordan has dropped 30 pounds since following McDaniels from New England to Denver. Now he checks in at 228 pounds, the lightest he's been in his nine-year NFL career.
Jordan has been sharing starting duties with fellow free agent Correll Buckhalter while top pick Knowshon Moreno works his way into shape after a long holdout.
Jordan says that for the first time in his career he realizes he has to work just as hard off the field as he does on it.
