(Getty Images) With every free agent running back and his brother wanting to fill the void in Denver’s backfield, the Broncos decided to workout just one free agent, Steve Slaton. Per Mike Klis of the Denver Post: The Broncos worked out former Houston Texans running back Steve Slaton on Tuesday morning.  As of Tuesday evening, the Broncos had not yet signed the former West Virginia star. Slaton had a terrific rookie season for the Texans in 2008, rushing for 1,282 yards and catching 50 passes. But he had fumble and durability issues in his next two seasons, and last year he split time with the Texans and Miami Dolphins, playing in six games combined and gaining 84 yards on 24 attempts. The Broncos worked out Slaton after starter Willis McGahee suffered a serious knee injury against San Diego.  Klis says the Broncos are “considering” signing Slaton, but Sunday’s line-up will feature Ronnie Hillman, Lance Ball, and Knowshon Moreno either way. Activating Jeremiah Johnson from the practice squad is another option. Currently, the team appears content to go into this week’s game against Kansas City with their three main running backs sharing the load. “Right now, we feel really good about the guys we have,” Coach John Fox said on Monday.  ”They’re trained in our system.  It’s pretty extensive.  We feel good about the people we have.” How do you feel about the Broncos’ backfield?  Should the team bring in another option?  Dish out your thoughts in the comments below!
