Several Teams Have Spoken To Montee Ball, Browns Likely To Sign Him?


Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer confirms that the Browns have been in contact with free agent RB Montee Ball in recent days.

However, Cabot mentions that several teams have spoken to Ball, and it’s currently unclear which team he’ll be signing with at this point in time.


According to Adam Gerstenhaber of 923 The FAN in Cleveland, former Broncos RB Montee Ball is likely to sign on with the Browns at some point this week.

Ball was cut loose by the Broncos a day after they had already made their final roster cuts, which came as a bit of a surprise, as it appeared as though Denver may hold onto him.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reported earlier in the week that the Falcons were one of the teams that have expressed “some” interest in Ball.

However, it would make sense for the Browns to have interest in him, given that they currently have only two running back on their active roster, and rookie Duke Johnson had been dealing with a concussion for the past few weeks.

Ball, 24, was entering the third year of his four-year, $3.53 million rookie contract that included a $964,896 signing bonus when he was cut loose.

It’s been surprising to see how much Ball has struggled since entering the NFL. He’s dealt with a number of injuries and wound up falling down the Broncos’ depth chart to the point where it was clear that they preferred their other options.

In 2014, Ball was limited to appearing in just five games and rushing for 172 yards on 55 carries (3.1 YPC) to go along with nine receptions for 62 yards receiving and one total touchdown for the Broncos.

We’ll have more regarding Ball and where he could land as the news is available.
