Betts to Visit Broncos, Saints

Free agent running back Ladell Betts is scheduled to visit the Denver Broncos and New Orleans Saints this week, Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reports.

Betts, who turns 31 later this month, has rushed for 3,176 yards and 13 touchdowns, with 165 receptions for 1,505 yards and 3 touchdowns as a receiver out of the backfield. Betts' entire eight-year NFL career has been spent with the Washington Redskins, who chose the former Iowa Hawkeye in the second round (56th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft.

Betts is coming off ACL surgery that ended his 2009 season and stint with the Redskins, who released him on March 4.

The Broncos are in need of a veteran running back after running backs Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) and Correll Buckhalter (back) were injured this week. The Saints' interest may stem from the off-season departure of Mike Bell and restricted free agent running back Pierre Thomas suffering a minor wrist injury on Tuesday.
