The Facts: The San Diego Chargers signed Bennett on Wednesday after the running back was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier in the day.
Diehards Line: So why would a team already loaded with LaDainian Tomlinson, Darren Sproles and Jacob Hester on the roster be interested in Bennett? As NFL Network insider Adam Schefter suggested, the running-back needy Broncos could have used him in the worst way and clearly San Diego was aware of it. Thus, the Chargers and Broncos each put in a claim for Bennett -- and San Diego was awarded his services on the basis of having a worse record this season than Denver. Now Tatum Bell instead of Bennett is going to have to try to carry the ball and the Broncos to an AFC West title.
