Nobody knows who the Broncos starting running back will be in 2013, but it’s obvious that the team will be adding at least one player to the backfield this offseason. The New York Jets‘ Shonn Greene was thrown into the conversation by ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini on Sunday:
There has been some buzz here on the future of RB Shonn Greene, an unrestricted free agent. Spies say Greene, coming off an underwhelming 1,000-yard season, is expected to draw interest from the Falcons and Broncos…
The Broncos don’t have a clear-cut No. 1 back. The Jets, looking for a speed back to pair with Bilal Powell, are prepared to part ways with Greene.
The Broncos have already also been linked to St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson, but it sounds like Jackson wants to return to St. Louis. Jackson, 29, is two years older and fourteen pounds heavier than Greene (who weighs in at 226 pounds).
Should the Broncos go after Greene? Speak up in the comments below.
