The biggest wave of free agency has come and gone, and the Denver Broncos have made some big moves signing players like T.J. Ward, Aqib Talib and DeMarcus Ware. Their next move in free agency should involve bring back one of their own players.
Knowshon Moreno is still available, and there is no doubting on how well he performed during the 2013 season. While it did take him up until that season to breakout, the Broncos should at least give him a short deal to prove to himself, and the organization, that last year was in fact not a fluke.
Having Moreno in the backfield again would help the Broncos because of his pass blocking ability, something that Montee Ball could use some help on. While Ball is in fact the running back of the future, I just do not see him ready to take on the lead role just yet. He has seemed to work on his fumbling issues and has the ability to break tackles and get into the open field for a big gain. Just a little bit more practice, and Ball will be ready to take over.
Moreno has a lot to build off of. He is coming off of a 1,000 yard season and appears to begin in his prime. The Broncos appear to be interested in bringing him back. However, they will have to react quickly, because there are a few other teams in the mix looking to acquire the running back. Who can blame them, as Moreno is the best running back in free agency remaining.
While the Broncos have made a series of moves to improve their defense, perhaps the biggest move that they could make is bringing back Moreno. He was in fact one of the players that helped the offense to the record setting year the team was known for. They have already lost Eric Decker to free agency, it would be a shame if they lost another weapon in the same fashion.
