Free agent running back Justin Fargas is on his way to take a physical and possibly finalize a deal with the Broncos, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Fargas, 30, has run for 3,369 yards and 10 touchdowns during his seven-year career in the NFL, the entirety of which spent with the Oakland Raiders, who chose Fargas in the third-round of the 2003 NFL Draft out of USC.
Fargas has added 77 receptions for 523 yards as a receiver out of the backfield. The Raiders released Fargas in March, claiming he had failed a physical. Denver is in need of running back depth with Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter sidelined with injuries.
