According to a Denver TV station, the Broncos have reached an agreement with Patriots free-agent running back LaMont Jordan.
Jordan would be the third Patriot that former New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has plucked from his old team, joining long-snapper Lonie Paxton and wide receiver Jabar Gaffney.
Jordan played in eight games last season for the Patriots and rushed 80 times for 363 yards and four touchdowns. His 49-yard touchdown run against the Raiders was the team's longest rush of the season.
The 30-year-old Jordan missed eight games after he suffered a calf injury against San Francisco on Oct. 5
Jordan's time in New England was up when the Patriots signed free-agent running back Fred Taylor to a two-year, $5 million deal.
Update, 6:40 p.m. -- A league source has confirmed to the Globe that Jordan signed a two-year deal worth a total of $2.5 million.
