The crown jewel amongst the running backs available in free agency, Derrick Ward, will be in Denver on Sunday.
Ward has received attention from several teams and with the signing of Corell Buckhalter it seemed like the Denver Broncos may have been out of contention in the Ward sweepstakes.
If the Broncos were able to lure Ward, the bruising capabilities out of their backfield would be unparalleled in the NFL.
Both Ward and Buckhalter have spelled two of the better running backs in the NFL for the last couple of seasons. They both carry very similar capabilities to their former team members Brandon Jacobs and Brian Westbrook.
Having seen Ward play for the last several seasons in New York, I am very much a fan. I would love to have him and I think that if Denver was able to sign him the one-two-three punch from the Broncos back game would be simply incredible. Yes, we have young talent, but both Ryan Torain and Peyton Hillis were hurt twice last season. Yes, both Ward and Buckhalter have injury concerns as well. What do you say Nation?
