Free agent RB Montee Ball worked out for the Patriots Tuesday.
It's a noteworthy name, but we doubt a signing is imminent. Few teams are more meticulous about knowing the free agent market than the Pats. Bill Belichick is likely just updating his emergency list. Sep 29 - 5:21 PM

The Browns have interest in signing free agent Montee Ball.

Ball would be a logical fit for the Browns after trading Terrance West and showing interest in Ray Rice. He's reportedly considering offers from several teams. Ball would give Cleveland insurance for Isaiah Crowell.
Sep 9 - 6:05 PM

Ex-Broncos RB Montee Ball went unclaimed on waivers.

It's a mild surprise, but speaks to how far Ball's stock has fallen. The Denver Post reports the diminutive third-year back has already drawn interest from multiple teams, including the Falcons. He'll likely crack someone's 53-man roster in the next week.
Sep 7 - 5:45 PM

The Denver Post reports the Falcons have expressed interest in free agent Montee Ball.

Specifically, beat writer Troy Renck says the Falcons have "some" interest. Renck reports multiple teams have reached out. Ball would provide a rugged between-the-tackles element that Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman both lack, but has obviously been a plodder through his first two NFL seasons. At best, he'd be a part of a committee in Atlanta. It's possible he'd be little more than Week 1 insurance for Freeman, who is nursing a hamstring injury.

Broncos waived RB Montee Ball.

It was reported Saturday that Ball had survived the Broncos' cuts, but that was only true before GM John Elway went to work on the waiver wire. Elway presumably spent the past 48 hours exhausting trade possibilities on his 2013 second rounder. Ball has been a plodding disappointment as former UDFAs like C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson have surged past him on the depth chart, but there should be teams willing to take a flier on the running ability that made him a day-two pick. There's a strong chance he's claimed on waivers.
Sep 6 - 2:12 PM

9 News Denver's Mike Klis reported RB Montee Ball is not among the Broncos' final cuts.

Ball's roster spot seemed all but gone after a disastrous showing in the fourth preseason game, but Denver will keep the former second-round pick around for at least another couple days. Ball could still be cut once waiver claims begin this afternoon. The Broncos may also be holding out hope they can get something back for Ball on the trade market.
Sep 5 - 12:40 PM

The Fort Worth-Star Telegram reports the Cowboys could have interest in Montee Ball if he's released.

The Cowboys should be smart enough to know Ball is very likely to be waived by the Broncos, whereafter they could acquire him without giving up a draft pick. The Cowboys are not interested in parting with compensation to acquire Ball. Ball remains likely to end up on another team's roster by Monday.
Sep 4 - 3:15 PM

A Cowboys source told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram the team has had "no trade talks" regarding Montee Ball.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport also tweeted Friday that the rumor -- which originated from CBS 4 in Denver -- is "not true." The Broncos are known to be shopping Ball, but at the moment it doesn't appear Dallas has genuine interest. If the Broncos can't find a trade partner, it seems likely Ball will be waived.
Sep 4 - 3:03 PM

CBS 4 Denver's Vic Lombardi reports the Broncos are discussing a Montee Ball trade with the Cowboys.

Ball had a highly unimpressive preseason in Denver's zone-rushing attack, but the Cowboys have long been high on his ability and could put him into a rotation with underwhelming Joseph Randle, and injury-prone Darren McFadden. We suspect Ball wouldn't cost more than a seventh-round pick. 24 years old, Ball has a 4.2 yards per carry average with 29 catches through two NFL seasons.
Sep 4 - 2:36 PM

Montee Ball rushed 16 times for 27 yards (1.7 YPC) in the Broncos' final preseason game.

It was a disastrous performance against second- and third-string defenders. Ball had one nice eight-yard run where he broke a tackle and gained extra yards, but after that he was the same sluggish back who has tumbled down the depth chart this preseason. It is difficult to see a future for Ball in Denver, and it would be surprising if he survives final cuts.
Sep 4 - 12:07 AM

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said RBs Montee Ball and Kapri Bibbs will get the 'bulk of the work' in the fourth preseason game.

Getting a lot of work in the fourth preseason game is never a good sign for a player's roster status. Ball has fallen way behind C.J. Anderson, Ronnie Hillman and even Juwan Thompson on the depth chart. At this point, he is just fighting for a roster spot. It is a fight he may end up losing.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis does not believe Broncos RB Montee Ball will make the final roster.

Ball has been steadily falling down the depth chart all offseason and played behind Juwan Thompson in the third preseason game. Ball should get one more shot in the fourth preseason game to show his worth, but right now his job is anything but secure.
Sep 1 - 9:36 AM

Montee Ball appears to be in danger of losing his roster spot in Denver.

He won't be a part of Denver's first cuts, but he might not make it when the Broncos trim to 53 this upcoming weekend. Ball is squarely behind C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman, while Juwan Thompson is making a run to be Denver's No. 3 back. "Special teams is a big factor with him and Juwan," coach Gary Kubiak said. "We'll see. I'm fine with Montee." If Ball were cut on Saturday, he would go through the NFL's waivers process. "Right now it's C.J., Ronnie, then Juwan, then me," Ball acknowledged. "So I guess just what it is."

Aug 31 - 4:33 PM

Montee Ball rushed four times for 11 yards and caught one pass for 20 yards in the Broncos' third preseason game.

Ball played behind Juwan Thompson, who appears to have jumped him for the third spot on the depth chart. Already well behind Ronnie Hillman for the backup job, Ball has zero fantasy value heading into the season. He is not guaranteed to make the final roster.
Aug 30 - 12:15 AM

The Denver Post reports RB Montee Ball is being pushed by Juwan Thompson for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart.

Ball has already been jumped by Ronnie Hillman, and it appears Juwan Thompson could be next. Ball has never flashed at the NFL level, and he has reportedly been "slumping" in training camp. His spot on the roster is not secure.
