Bill Williamson (formerly of the Denver Post now ESPN) is reporting that the Broncos are showing preliminary interest in signing halfbacks Shaun Alexander who was recently cut by the Seahawks or Dominic Rhodes after he was released by the Raiders last week. If this were to be true “it doesn’t seem close to happening at this point“. Williamson is going out on a limb and saying if Denver brought in either that the team would likely release Travis Henry after his well documented “rocky start” with the Broncos. Williamson surmises the Broncos are high on Selvin Young and new 5th round pick Ryan Torain so that would leave Henry as the odd man out in the backfield logjam . This is based off the speculation that Shanahan no longer wants to deal with the troubled Henry and would rather get a veteran replacement on the roster now before the upcoming team camps.
