Mike Florio is reporting the Denver Broncos are likely to sign Running Back Rashard Mendenhall, whose rookie deal with Pittsburgh officially expired today.
Via Florio, Mendenhall has had his problems:
“Mendenhall suffered a torn ACL in Week 17 of the 2011 season, and he battled an Achilles injury during the 2012 season. He also had an Osama bin Laden Twitter misadventure two years ago, not to mention a decision to stay home after he was informed he’d be deactivated for a December game against the Chargers.”
Other teams interested in Mendenhall include the Arizona Cardinals, but Florio declares Denver as the favorites to sign him.
