After trading Trent Richardson to Indianapolis last season, the Browns will be in the market for a new running back, amongst other things.
When the 2013 season started, Ronnie Hillman sat atop the team's depth chart at running back. But a fumbling problem would soon have him benched—permanently.
The Broncos have Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson on the roster. If they are able to re-sign Knowshon Moreno, there isn't much of a future in Denver for Hillman.
The Browns have two fourth-round picks in the upcoming NFL draft. If the Broncos were able to get the first of those (102nd overall), they'd probably be thrilled.
However, if the Broncos wanted to get another player from Cleveland in exchange for Hillman, the Browns might be able to help in that regard too.
Alternate Trade Option
If there is one thing the Browns do have, it's a good collection of young wide receivers. Josh Gordon is quickly turning into one of the top young players in the league.
Travis Benjamin is a player they may be willing to part with. He could bring a lot of excitement to Denver.
Benjamin was selected in the fourth round of the 2012 draft. He has yet to make an impact as a wide receiver in the NFL, but much of that can be attributed to Cleveland's offensive woes.
But Benjamin has shown that he can return punts and kicks. He has averaged 16.4 yards per punt return while bringing back two for a touchdown.
If the Broncos made a deal to trade Hillman for Benjamin straight across, it may allow them to release Trindon Holliday, who has displayed some serious issues with ball security.
