Running backs LeGarrette Blount, Ben Tate cut; Broncos not interested

Two veteran running backs were dumped on Tuesday, but the Broncos - whose own running back corps is decimated by injury - are not interested in either of them.

Pittsburgh expectedly cut LeGarrette Blount, less than a day after he'd left the field during the Steelers' MNF win at Tennessee.

Bibbs is an impressive young runner. He’s missing the receiving and pass protection aspects of his game. Those, along with building the NFL body that coach Fox likes to mention, are the things that he should be working on. It’s a full time job.
