The Denver Broncos have a lot of depth and talent at the running back position. It’s tough to imagine a scenario where they can keep Willis McGahee, Knowshon Moreno, Ronnie Hillman, Montee Ball and Lance Ball on the roster.
There has been talk about McGahee and Moreno as possible offseason cuts, but up to this point, no decision has been made. This could be because the other running backs are mostly unproven. Denver is looking to make a Super Bowl run, and is likely playing it cautious with how they handle this position.
Montee Ball was a second-pick this year and will likely get every chance to earn the starting job. If he’s able to seize that role, both McGahee and Moreno will become more expendable.
*Update: According to ESPN.com, the Broncos released McGahee today.
