He was running just as good as McGahee last year before he got hurt and was under contract for the league minimum. He was easily our 2nd best back on the roster at cut time. If you cut or trade him, you have to eat about $3 mil on the cap and then have to replace him with an unknown.
I'll hear an argument for cutting Ball in the preseason and doing what you suggest. But Moreno? He still had value to us IMO.
