Broncos Sign RB LenDale White

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent running back LenDale White has signed a two-year deal with the Denver Broncos.

Financial terms were not disclosed, and running back Kolby Smith has been waived to make room for White.

Drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the second round (45th overall) in the 2006 NFL Draft out of USC, White has rushed for 2,349 yards and 24 touchdowns, and caught 42 passes for 204 yards in 58 games with the Titans.

The 6-1, 235-pound White ran for 1,110 yards in 2007, and scored 15 touchdowns as the short-yardage back for the Titans in 2008.

A restricted free agent this off-season, White was acquired by the Seattle Seahawks and his college head coach Pete Carroll on the third day of the 2010 NFL Draft.

Th Seahawks waived White on May 28.

"It became apparent at this time that LenDale was not ready to be a member of the Seattle Seahawks," Seahawks' general manager John Schneider said at the time. "It just did not appear to be the right fit at this point in our program. We wish LenDale all the best with his future."

Shortly after being let go by the Seahawks, the NFL announced that White would face a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. White has admitted to using marijuana. White's suspension will take affect at the start of the regular season, but he will be allowed to practice and participate in the Broncos' pre-season games.

The Denver Broncos, who are currently without top running backs Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter, worked out running backs Ladell Betts and Adrian Peterson today before signing White.
