Moreno not a special back so I doubt we pay him much. He ran hard this yr and showed us he does belong in the NFL but he's not a big playmaker. He's a 5yrd plodder with no deep speed for big plays.

It is understandable that the team would let him walk if they believe Ball can be the guy. I believe we have enough $ to sign him on a friendly extension to get several good more years of football out of him, but it will depend on where we allocate our resources. Knowing if we win, that there is a good Champ retires, brings $10 M off the books immediately. I think that goes towards Decker and DRC -- and whatever else we can manage with what we have gets us Moreno and a few others.

Rabb
01-29-2014, 11:11 AM
You mean the links that say Denver will let him test free agency? Nowhere does it say, he isn't signing with us next season. It says basically, he could be a cap casualty.

But hey, don't let me stop the rumor train.

I don't expect any decisions will be made any time soon regarding any players. Who knows if Champ returns or restructures? Who knows if DRC is resigned? Too many variables, plus this week this is a rumor that is just a distraction. Like they are trying to get Moreno to think about next season and not focus on this weeks game...

Yeah, the guy with a backup they drafted in the 2nd round last April to replace him, and that backup got better as the season wore on.

Denver's going to have to make some hard decisions over the next two offseasons on who they keep and who they have to let go because they need to spend cap dollars elsewhere. Moreno is at the top of that list since Ball is signed cheap for 3 more seasons and the following guys also need new deals over the next year or two: Decker, Von, DT, Julius, Franklin, Chris Harris, Vickerson, Knighton, Woodyard and Trevathon.

It's not an insult to the guy, he was great this season, it's the reality of salary cap league.

I firmly believe as long as Manning is here, so is Moreno. Manning loves him and trusts him. Ball is great, and hopefully continues to improve in the pass game and hold the ball, but there is a reason so much of the offense went through Moreno. Lets not forget that Hillman was supposed to take Moreno's job as well.

Yep. Every team is in the same boat. And it's not like RB is the marquee position it once was. Knowshon should also include in his calculations the benefits of being on a playoff caliber team.

I wouldn't want to over pay if some other team offers a big contract (don't really see that happening though), but he's already making about $3.5 million this year - a bump up to $4.5-5/year would probably be pretty easy to fit into the cap/budget.

He's fought back and earned the right to be a Bronco. If they do win on Sunday, the first priority should be to keep this offense together. Manning should consider shaving a bit off his salary to help out if need be. I would hate to see Moreno go after finally becoming a contributor.

01-29-2014, 01:25 PM
This doesn't surprise me at all, and it really shouldn't surprise anyone. The Broncos under Elway have proven that they're not going to overpay for a player when they feel they can find an adequate replacement elsewhere. The more that Ball has improved, the more likely this becomes. I'd love to have Moreno back, but not at the price that I think he'll get on the market.

The other player that I think will be in the same boat is Wesley Woodyard, thanks to Trevathan.

Decker and Moreno aren't the only guys who will be in need of a new deal, and in terms of need, Moreno is not a top priority. While he has shown a new attitude and ability the last season and a half, he isn't so talented that if he decided to play elsewhere that he would be sorely missed. MJD is a free agent and more than likely will need to sign for a smaller deal. He would probably be willing to come in on a cheap single year deal to play in this offense with Peyton Manning. And that is just a guy off the top of my head. Hell CJ could live up to the hype and our depth issue is solved right there.

In the list of guys who are coming up for new deals, Decker, Woodyard, Harris, Bailey, Ayers, Moreno, Beadles, DRC, and Phillips Moreno is not near the top of the list.

Also, with Von it remains to be seen how much he gets. Guys who can get to the QB will always get overpaid. It will depend on how he comes back next season that will determine his next contract.

Add in that JT and DT will probably be looking for new deals and the team would be wise to look at setting those up now instead of after another monster season from both.

With premier players like DRC, JT, DT, Decker, Harris, Franklin and Von all needing new contracts in the near future, Woodyard, Ayers, Moreno and Beadles may wind up looking elsewhere for their money. And as much as I have liked the idea of trading Clark for a pick I am liking the idea of him taking Beadles job once Clady returns rather than overpaying for Beadles.

Agamemnon
01-29-2014, 03:08 PM
Blocking and screens, not so much.

He's been much better late in the year, and I would assume he will continue to improve.

I think the issues with re-signing Moreno is that we need the money to secure other less replaceable players over the next few years, and he hasn't been able to stay healthy throughout his career other than this year. I also think he's going to be overpaid by a clueless front office somewhere.

This. I love Knowshon. He's everything I like in a football player (cept for when he runs full speed into the asses of our linemen.) Love his attitude, love his versatility. Love his leadership. But he's more of a replaceable part than some of our others guys.

bpc
01-29-2014, 06:30 PM
He rides to the game with Decker and Tamme. Bet he restructures for Decker before Knowshon.

I used to despise Knowshon. All talk, every play, no substance and injury prone. He's morphed and grown into a complete back before our eyes. He'll never be great though so there is a ceiling. There was a reason that Elway drafted the way he did. It's too bad Hillman has sucked so bad but he's still young. Ball looks like a stud. He can run, he can catch, he's learning to block and he's more dynamic running with the ball than Moreno is. Unless Moreno comes back for a reasonable price, he probably is gone.

TripleTilde
01-29-2014, 06:47 PM
It wouldn't surprise me if Moreno gets re-signed based on Peyton's strong endorsement. But really, I think he's expendable. I expect Ball to progress. I could also see Denver signing a vet with some tread on the tires for depth.

DeuceOfClub
01-29-2014, 06:57 PM
KM value to the Broncos is much higher than any other team, due to familiarity with the offense.

01-29-2014, 06:57 PM

I heard from the stadium Team Store girl that I used to date that the team's top priority is re-signing Decker. Of course she never understood football, she just knew Decker sold a lot of jerseys.

I'm sure Manning would have loved to have kept the 27 year old Edgerinn James too. Colts won the Super Bowl the year after he left. Running backs are expendable.

Yeah and so were OL,LB,DL,ST & that's why he's a Bronco now.

Cap space speculation nothing more.

This is a 100% Speculative fluff piece.

Thank you. So many people like to say "it was reported" so that has to mean there's something lagit about it. Like the Broncos would be letting something like that out or even thinking about that right at this moment. That's just the media, trying to get traction. Nothing more.

This is nothing more than mental games that the organization is playing with Knowshon. They're trying to fire him up on the biggest stage of his career. And if he goes out and does what he did last week, it might be a self fulfilling prophecy. He's going to be set up to make bank.

Face book and Bleacher Report?

You forgot Light Rail too. Hilarious!

To me this doesn't matter where it comes from. This has been my thought process for a long time now. If Moreno helps the Broncos deliver a SB. Then great! But, next year is a new year and he is easily playing a position that can be replaced.

We have Ball, Hillman, CJ, and free agency/draft to pick another player/players up. Add another RB/RB's and the Broncos will continue to roll.

I wish Moreno well.

"Per a source familiar with the team's thinking"? That could be a former employee like Xanders who really doesn't know, or even Moreno's agent. His agent could just be drumming up crap to incite a bidding war.

All that said, the Broncos have always been fair to valuable players. I'm sure if Elway thinks Moreno is an important cog in this offense, he will give him a fair number, but not overpay.

I think Elway will let other teams overpay if they want, but offer Moreno what he thinks is fair value. But the bottom line is it will be up to Moreno if he wants to re-sign or not.

I doubt it. They don't need to do that. Moreno already knows he's a FA and if he has a big game it leads to big dollars. The Broncos don't need to remind him of that. I'm sure it's been on his mind every game this year. It's just the media trying to get viewers. Nothing more.

Exactly. He turns 27 yrs old in July. He's looking for that last big payday. It will not be from Denver. GL to him and deliver Sunday.

No it's not. It's not even real. It was probably something someone from bleacher report told an analyst.

This rumor is baloney. Not real.evidence to support this?


Man some of this stuff in this thread is crazy. Moreno has picked up sooooo many critical third downs and you think he's expendable. Crazy I think he is very crucial to re-sign

I do too.

I also wonder who the **** in the org would let fly with something like this just a few days before the biggest game of the guy's life. Makes me think it's some low-level staffer talking to someone over beers and saying "I don't know if we'll be able to bring Knowshon back. Just don't know if it'll be possible."

True, we don't know if it's possible... but we've known that for a while now. Why put it in print? Who benefits?

I hate reports like this because no one ever challenges them. Half the posters in this thread read the the title of the article and took it as gospel.

"A source familiar with the Broncos thinking" is the source. That could be anyone.

And then the real stupid part, the source believes "they may not be able to resign him."

So really "Some guy thinks signing Moreno may not get extended" becomes "John Elway announced that Knowhon Moreno can go **** himself." And that turns into a bunch of discussions about how they already let his agent know, or how we're going to draft another RB, or that this is a tactical release by the front office to motivate him for the Super Bowl or whatever.

There's no there there.
