Broncos Cut RB Bernard Pierce

The Broncos are releasing running back Bernard Pierce, as Mike Klis of 9News tweets. Pierce had been with Denver since signing a reserve/futures deal in January.Bernard Pierce (vertical)

The 27-year-old showed potential as a rookie in 2012 with the Ravens, averaging 4.9 yards per carry on 108 attempts. He spent another two seasons with Baltimore, but his performance was up-and-down in his reserve role. In 2015, he hooked on with the Jaguars and totaled just six carries for 11 yards. He did not see the field in 2016 and he was even passed on by the Jets in December.

The Broncos still have a good number of running backs on the 90-man roster, including C.J. Anderson, Devontae Booker, Jamaal Charles, Juwan Thompson, and De’Angelo Henderson.
