Straight out of the rumor mill comes word that the Denver Broncos may part ways with 25 year old running back Knowshon Moreno this spring.

“Moreno, the 12th pick of the 2009 draft, may be a former Bronco before long. Moreno never has performed up to where he was chosen in the draft, and he has a cap number of $3.28 million in 2013.

“Moreno impressed coaches in 2012 by coming on strong late with two 100 yard rushing games in December and even was voted AFC offensive player of the week, but his tenure in Denver mostly is notable for injuries and fumbles,” NFP‘s Dan Pompei wrote on Sunday morning.

It seems more likely that Pompei is speculating rather than reporting information received from the team, but the latter is possible.  Either way, Moreno’s time in Denver appears to be coming to an end.

    I just don’t see it happening. We need to draft another RB and we need Hillman to show he can block better than Ricky Schroder but Moreno is still an extremely versatile back even if he is only a backup.

    McGahee on the other hand is older than Sekhemib-Perenmaat with hands that make a Slip ‘N Slide look like Stickum.

  • Mike Birtwistle

    Of course they will keep him. Name me a player that produce the same for the same cost.

  • Jon Broncos Heath

    TD, oh wait, you mean today?

  • AZDynamics

    Nope. The Broncos are hurting for depth at RB, anyway. Cut Moreno and keep Ball? Are you serious? That’s the trouble with rumors. They’re just rumors . . .

    IMO…..We should keep Hillman and Hester. Kick the rest to the curb. We can pick up a couple in the draft and sign a FA

    I like Moreno, i think he deserve a shot this season coming!!

  • Cheyenne Kid

    First of all,it may just be a true rumor. He sure ran harder than I have never seen him do when he had the chance,then boom out with another injury. So the jury is still out. He blocks the best of them and has good hands in receivng out of the backfield. But the question that sticks in the back my mind is his durability!

  • Pete Baron

    “I have nothing else to add…. that was a perfect answer”

  • Pete Baron

    To me, going forward, his durability is the only question I have. Like you said, if there’s one thing we can count on with Moreno, it’s that he’ll get hurt. While before this year, he never impressed me and I really thought this would be his last year, what he did this season can’t be denied. Something between his ears clicked, and we started to see the RB that he was suppose to be coming out of Georgia.

    Whether we keep him or not (I think we will) is still up in the air because of many factors (like drafting a RB), but one thing isn’t in doubt…. he’ll get injured. Whether or not he turns the injury bug around like Demaryius Thomas or not has yet to be seen, but so far, it’s the same story with this kid when it comes to getting hurt. Hopefully what he did this last season continues, cause if he can kick the injury bug to the curb, he has every shot at being a “franchise RB” (and not, I don’t mean an Adrian Peterson type, I mean a solid starter/2nd Tier RB)

    he earned another year as a Bronco for sure. dumb rumor

  • TD30ismvp

    My fear is this; He couldn’t stay on the field when he wasn’t “running hard” how many games will he actually play in?
