Denver Broncos News: Tatum Bell signed to the roster

After losing rookie Ryan Torain to an ACL injury for the season and shuffling around whatever they have left in the running back tank, the Broncos signed former Detroit Lion and Denver Bronco Tatum Bell.

Given what was available and the condition of the Broncos backfield, I like the move.  He may take some time to get to playing shape but he knows the system and has proven he can run in it.  He also brings the home run threat with his breakaway speed.  The only negatives in my mind are that he is not exactly a tackle-breaking runner and tends to fumble the rock.  Even with all that, I like this move.  Reports are that he may be ready to go this Sunday for the Falcons game.
