The Denver Broncos have waived injured FB Kyle Eckel (undisclosed), according to DenverBroncos.com.

Footballguys view: The veteran fullback may have a hard time catching on with another team. Looks like the Broncos are going to go with converted linebacker Spencer Larsen as their only fullback.

  Broncos | Kyle Eckel signed    Fri Jun 4, 12:44 PM

The Denver Broncos have signed unrestricted free-agent FB Kyle Eckel (Saints), according to DenverBroncos.com's Gray Caldwell. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Eckel played with McDaniels in New England. He is a better blocker than Peyton Hillis, but not nearly as nifty or productive with the ball in his hands.

  Texans | Eckel, Booker work out     Tue Oct 20, 08:39 PM

Adam Caplan, of Scout.com, reports free-agent FB Kyle Eckel (Eagles) and free-agent RB Lorenzo Booker (Eagles) worked out for the Houston Texans this week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Booker has never lived up to his potential, and would only be a change of pace back if signed.

  Eagles | Announce roster moves    Sat Sep 5, 06:09 PM

Chris McPherson, of PhiladelphiaEagles.com, reports the Philadelphia Eagles have waived CB Trae Williams, CB Jack Ikegwuonu, DE Bryan Smith, DE Josh Gaines, LB Torrance Daniels, FS Reshard Langford, WR Danny Amendola, RB Lorenzo Booker, C Dallas Reynolds, OG Paul Fanaika, OG Michael Gibson, TE Robert Myers, FB Marcus Mailei and FB Kyle Eckel. The Eagles have also released LB Matt Wilhelm and TE Matt Schobel.

Footballguys view: It looks like both Reggie Brown and Brandon Gibson will make the final roster at WR, and Eldra Buckley will make it at RB. Booker has been a disappointment for the Eagles, and he looks like he's lost his confidence when running the football. He may catch on with another team as a change of pace back.

  Eagles | Three to split time at running back in camp    Thu Jul 23, 12:01 PM

Bob Brookover, of The Philadelphia Inquirer, reports Philadelphia Eagles RBs Lorenzo Booker, LeSean McCoy and Kyle Eckel will receive the majority of work at running back during training camp with RB Brian Westbrook (ankle) recovering from ankle surgery. FB Leonard Weaver is also viewed as a contributor at running back.

Footballguys view: Weaver is going to be occupied learning the intricacies of the fullback position in Philly's offense, but he will most definitely be a contributor to the offense. In fact, Weaver is the best short yardage back the Eagles have on the roster, so if they want to save Westbrook some of that punishment, expect them to turn to Weaver.
