Knowshon Moreno finally put his most productive season together since being drafted in 2009. Before the 2013 season, Moreno was considered a boarder-line draft bust and thankfully for his 1,038 yard, 10 touchdown campaign this past season, those talks have died down. Now the running back wants to stay with the team that has been patient with him, the Denver Broncos.
The problem is that the Broncos have three running backs behind Moreno that may be able to produce similar numbers. Montee Ball, a star at the university of Wisconsin, Ronnie Hillman had his moments in the offense, and C.J. Anderson. All three running backs are cheaper than Moreno’s salary.
Now, in no way is Moreno expensive. The fifth-year veteran would cost about $3 million a year. Moreno has expressed to the people of Colorodo’s 9 News, he wants to stay with the franchise.
“We’ll see what happens in the offseason and hopefully I’m still here with this team,” Moreno said. “I’m still part of the Broncos and that’s all good right now. We’ll see what happens with the rest.”
The Broncos have more than just Moreno. Wide receiver Eric Decker is also unsure if he will be able to stay in Denver. Decker’s numbers were still impressive (87 catches, 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns) even with the addition of Wes Welker to the offense.
“I would love to come back. I don’t know my future either,” Decker said. “It makes it more real. And you just appreciate again what this year has meant to all of us,” Decker said about his statistics.
So John Elway and the Broncos definitely have decisions to make. In reality, they do have enough depth to let the two players go but will Elway think they are better with them or without them? That’s what they must figure out.
