Default Broncos sign RB Michael Pittman

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3414250

A few weeks ago, the Broncos toyed with the idea of signing Dominic Rhodes or Shaun Alexander, but on Tuesday, they got serious, reaching an agreement with former Buccaneers halfback Michael Pittman.

Pittman's agreement came at a time the team has some concerns about Travis Henry's slow recovery from an offseason hamstring injury.

The 32-year-old Pittman is a physical back. He rushed for 286 yards on 68 carries for a 4.2 yard average last season.

This is probably a good signing. Pittman played OK in Tampa for the past few years. He's far from a "physical back," though. Receiving and blitz pickup are his strengths, while breaking tackles is one of his biggest weaknesses. At 32, he's probably best with less than 100 carries for the year.

I was hoping the Bucs would re-sign him. No big loss though.
