The Denver Broncos on Wednesday morning officially signed free-agent running back Justin Fargas.
Fargas spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Oakland Raiders, rushing for 1,009 yards and four touchdowns as recently as 2007. The University of Southern California product has a career 4.1 yards-per-carry average.
The Raiders drafted Fargas in the third round (96th overall) of the 2003 NFL Draft from the University of Southern California.
The former division rival torched the Broncos during a mid-season contest in 2007, tallying 33 carries for 146 yards and a score in a Raiders victory. In 2008, Fargas totaled 204 yards rushing in two games versus Denver.
