Pittman Signs With Broncos

Former Tampa Bay running back Michael Pittman has signed with Denver according to a report on ESPN.com.
Pittman, a 10-year veteran, ranks fourth all-time in team history with 3,364 rushing yards (5,307 overall), sixth in team history with 284 career receptions (415 overall), and owns four of the 16 longest rushing plays in team history. His defining moment was rushing 29 times for 124 yards to lead Tampa Bay to 48-21 Super Bowl victory against Oakland during the 2002 season.
However, Pittman’s value in Tampa Bay dropped with the emergence of Earnest Graham last season, plus the promise of Michael Bennett and addition of Warrick Dunn. Pittman, an unrestricted free agent, said he wanted more playing time and will have an opportunity to compete in Denver. Broncos running back Travis Henry is slowly recovering from a hamstring injury and Pittman will be given the opportunity to play if Henry does not show enough progress in the upcoming months.
Last season, Pittman played running back and fullback and finished with 286 rushing yards, plus had 26 receptions for 191 yards.
