Now with the Jacksonville Jaguars after being claimed off waivers one day after the Ravens cut him from the roster, Pierce broke his silence in discussing the incident for the first time as he met with Jacksonville reporters this week.
When the Ravens cut backup running back Bernard Pierce this week following his driving under the influence arrest, they did so with the knowledge that he was already the likely odd man out on their depth chart.
Running back Bernard Pierce was claimed by the Jacksonville Jaguars off waivers from the Ravens one day after he was released following his arrest for driving under the influence, according to an NFL source.
Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley, who was defensive coordinator in Seattle while Ravens running back Forsett played there for over three seasons, said Forsett's release had more to do with a lingering foot injury and the team¿s young depth at running back than Forsett himself.
The timing is a little peculiar, but the Denver Broncos said adieu to former starting quarterback Kyle Orton on Tuesday. He had a good fantasy run under Josh McDaniels, but turnovers did him in with new coach John Fox. Is he worth a waiver claim? You have to read on to find out.
