Free agent RB Laurence Maroney worked out for the Redskins this week.
This is the first sniff we've heard of Maroney even getting a workout since the season started. On a bye week, the Redskins are obviously just updating their emergency list as their backfield is already crowded. Thu, Oct 6, 2011 09:19:00 AM

Free agent Laurence Maroney has not been invited to a tryout since the regular season began.

Teams are trying out washed-up retreads (Clinton Portis) and undrafted rookie practice squad types (Chase Reynolds), but they're not calling Maroney. The 26-year-old Maroney was recently cleared in connection with a misdemeanor marijuana charge. Maroney was the 21st overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft.

Free agent RB Laurence Maroney was acquitted of a misdemeanor marijuana charge in St. Louis Tuesday.

Maroney's next step is finding a job. His attorney said that the ex-Patriot and Bronco has two workouts lined up, but declined to name the teams. Maroney showed no signs of being a viable NFL running back while averaging 2.1 yards per carry during four games in Denver last season.

SI's Peter King says that former first-round pick Laurence Maroney failed due to a lack of passion for the game.

The Patriots drafted Maroney 21st overall in 2006. "I think they got bad advice on Laurence Maroney," King says. "Guys on the coaching staff at Minnesota overinflated Maroney, and the Patriots blew that pick. He’s not a blood-and-guts football player. He never was. And the Patriots made a mistake." King also suggested that New England's intel on Mark Ingram from Nick Saban would go a long way toward instilling confidence in Bill Belichick.

ESPN's Mike Reiss suggests that free agent Laurence Maroney "could have trouble making a roster next season."

Maroney averaged just 2.1 yards per carry for the Broncos last season and got slapped with a marijuana charge this offseason. The former first-round pick is always intriguing, but may have to wait for an injury in training camp to get another chance.

Free agent Laurence Maroney has reportedly been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession for his arrest back in January.

Maroney appeared to have escaped charges for the incident in St. Louis when he was found with marijuana and a handgun at a traffic stop. He had a permit for the gun, but there's no doctor's note for the pot. His game tape will be a bigger free-agent millstone than this misdemeanor charge.

The Broncos failed to extend a tender to potential restricted free agent Laurence Maroney.

Yet another draft pick wasted by Josh McDaniels. Battling injuries throughout the season, Maroney averaged a woeful 2.1 yards on just 36 carries with Denver last season. Between the declining production, injuries, a reputation for dancing at the line, and a January marijuana arrest, Maroney may struggle to land on a roster in early September.

Updating an earlier item, Laurence Maroney has reportedly been released without charges after his Monday night arrest for possession of marijuana and unlawful use of a weapon.

"Mr. Maroney was unlawfully arrested for possession of weapons," said Maroney's rep. "He holds a permit to carry a concealed weapon and he had his permit on his person when he was arrested. He was not arrested for any drugs nor was he involved in a high speed chase. He was released without being charged with any offense and we do not anticipate he will be charged with any criminal offense." We'll update this if more unfolds, but it sounds like Maroney has somehow dodged a bullet here, no pun intended.

Laurence Maroney was arrested late Monday night and is being held on unlawful weapons charges and drug charges.

There are few details available at this time, but we know that Maroney was in a car with three other men when the police pulled them over. Maroney's rookie contract expires this offseason, and he's not off to a good start if he's intending to catch on somewhere else with hopes of getting real playing time. We'll update this story as more facts become available.

Broncos declared RB Laurence Maroney, third QB Brady Quinn, CB Andre' Goodman, S Darcel McBath, WR Demaryius Thomas, LB David Veikune, C Eric Olsen, and OG Stanley Daniels inactive for Week 12.

Thomas is believed to have a high ankle sprain. Perrish Cox gets another start at right corner with Goodman out. There are no other surprises here.

Broncos declared RB Laurence Maroney, third QB Brady Quinn, CB Andre' Goodman, CB Cassius Vaughn, LB Robert Ayers, LB Kevin Alexander, OG Stanley Daniels, and G/C Eric Olsen inactive for Week 10.

Perrish Cox gets the nod at right corner, opposite Champ Bailey. Maroney has plummeted down the depth chart, and at this point even appears to be behind Lance Ball. Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter are also ahead of him.
Sun, Nov 14, 2010 02:49:00 PM

Laurence Maroney rushed seven times for 18 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jets.

Maroney only got carries because Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) clearly wasn't 100 percent. Regardless, Maroney is a disaster behind this offensive line. He's waiver wire fodder. The same can be said for Correll Buckhalter (six rushes, 20 yards).
Sun, Oct 17, 2010 08:00:00 PM

Laurence Maroney rushed six times for 27 yards in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

Maroney rotated pretty evenly with Correll Buckhalter out. Neither should sniff the field once Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) gets healthy. Feel free to dump Maroney.
Sun, Oct 10, 2010 04:19:00 PM

Laurence Maroney had just 5 yards on 11 carries, and caught two balls for 10 yards in a Week 4 win over the Titans.

Maroney got the start and a majority of the first half carries, but was hardly turned to in the second half. Rightfully so, as the former Patriot looked to be on his last legs. A majority of his carries were for either no game or negative yards, and he should not be active on an NFL roster, let alone fantasy.
Sun, Oct 3, 2010 05:13:00 PM

The Denver Post's Lindsay Jones expects Laurence Maroney to start and handle early-down work against the Titans this week.

Correll Buckhalter is expected to be used on third downs and in "special packages," but Maroney will lead the backfield in touches. Underwhelming as a runner last week, Maroney is a mere RB2/flex option against Tennessee's No. 17 run defense.
