Other casualties include running back Alex Haynes, tight end Chad Mustard, running back P.J. Pope and wide receiver Clifford Russell.
With running backs Michael Pittman and Tatum Bell both unrestricted free agents this off-season, that leaves the Broncos with an interesting trend at tailback.
Ryan Torain, Peyton Hillis, Selvin Young and Andre Hall remain. With the exception of Hall all are a bit on the larger side for running backs (depending how Young shows up to O.T.A.s this season). Other backs on the larger side of things available in free agency include Derrick Ward (Giants) and Correll Buckhalter (Eagles).
Nation, yes, Alridge didn’t get much of a shot here in Denver, but we always run the risk of jumping to conclusions. There may be something that we’re not aware of, like when Travis Henry was let go out of nowhere (as if that’s not jumping to conclusions, sorry do as I say, not as I do). For what it’s woth I thought Pope killed for the small amount of time that he was here as well. The new Denver brass may not see the potential in keeping eight running backs on the squad.
