Former Broncos running back Montee Ball has spoken to several teams, including the Browns, according to Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer (on Twitter). At this time it’s still uncertain where he’ll land, Cabot adds.
Ball, cut by the Broncos earlier this week, is now a free agent after clearing waivers. A Heisman finalist while at Wisconsin in 2011, Ball was selected by Denver in the 2013 draft, and was expected to be inserted as the starting running back in the Broncos’ high-powered offense. But over the course of two seasons, Ball was never able to secure a role as the No. 1 back, losing the job to Knowshon Moreno in ’13 and C.J. Anderson in ’14. All told, Ball saw less than 200 carries during his time with the Broncos, and totaled less than 800 yards on the ground.
On Monday, we learned that the Falcons are among the clubs with interest in Ball. The 24-year-old could also be a fit for teams like the Titans and Cowboys, but we have yet to hear of reported interest from either one of those clubs.
