After falling below the likes of Fred Taylor, Sammy Morris, and Kevin Faulk on the depth chart at running back, Laurence Maroney was shipped out of town on Tuesday. The Patriots traded him to the Denver Broncos, according to ESPN’s NFL insider, Adam Schefter. The Patriots shipped a sixth round pick in 2011 to Denver as well, and received a fourth rounder in return.

Patriots Get: Broncos Get:
  • 4th round pick (2011)
  • RB Laurence Maroney
  • 6th round pick (2011)

The fifth-year back out of Minnesota will head to a Denver backfield that includes sophomore rusher Knowshon Moreno and veteran Correll Buckhalter.

Maroney appeared in just two of New England’s four preseason games and was inactive in the team’s opener Sunday against the Bengals.

During training camp, Maroney told reporters that he was trying to change his running style after many critics argued that he took too long to find holes to run through.

“I’m not trying to be on, what’s that dance show they’ve got on TV? ‘Dancing With the Stars’?” Maroney said. “I’m physical. Downhill.”

In his career with the Pats, Maroney ran for 2,430 yards and 21 touchdowns, including a 757 yards and a career-high nine touchdowns in 2009.
