Veteran running back Willis McGahee has signed with the Denver Broncos.
The 29-year-old McGahee figures to complement incumbent starter Knowshon Moreno with his powerful style. New coach John Fox wants to lean heavily on the running game after the Broncos were pass-heavy in 2010 under Josh McDaniels.
The 6-foot, 235-pound McGahee spent four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens after four years with the Bills. Denver running backs coach Eric Studesville was McGahee's position coach in Buffalo from 2004-06.
McGahee has 1,541 career carries for 6,167 yards and 55 touchdowns. McGahee hasn't been a full-time starter since shortly after being picked for the Pro Bowl in 2007.
Under the new labor rules, McGahee can't practice until Thursday.
