Thursday was another sad day for Broncos Country when the team released veteran running back Willis McGahee. Montee Ball, the second round pick from Wisconsin, is in line for the now open position.
“The couple days I had with McGahee was kind of special because the guy is a great man and I wish him the best, but like I said, it’s a business in the program, so I’m definitely going to stay on track,” Ball said in a press conference on Thursday.

And along with Moreno, Montee Ball, Lance Ball, Ronnie Hillman, Jacob Hester, C.J. Anderson, and Jeremiah Johnson are all available to fill that slo...

The Denver Broncos won the AFC West last year and easily will be the favorites this year to win the Super Bowl (please don’t sue us NFL). Often when a team is solid talent wise, you won’t see too many camp battles. Looks like that exclusion excludes the two safety positions. According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, former starters Rahim Moore and Mike Adams are in danger of...
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, there’s “some sense” that the Denver Broncos and left tackle Ryan Clady can get a deal done by next month.
These sides haven’t been able to get on the same page as to Clady’s value, and sources said the kind of money the Broncos had on the table for a long-term deal, prior to placing the tag on Clady, simply were not in line...

Ball will be the short-yardage back and possibly the starter by the end of the year...
