Broncos are not worrying about 5-6 yrs down the road right now. To worry one back has a few hundred more college carries and might not last as long is a joke.
That was my feeling. I mean who cares if he only has a 6 year career if they are a great 6 years? I mean plenty of second rounbders are busts or make minimum contributions yet you are going to b**** because the 54th pick in the draft only gave you 6 great years?
With all of Ball's experiance he is a proven back, a clutch back and has come through in big situations. I see that QB draw up the middle producing big yards this year.
I woulod keep McGahee as the mentor. McGahee did average 4.4 YPC last year. Maybe Ball can teach him how NOT to fumble.
I see Moreno as the odd man out since he only has one year left on his contract and McGahee has 2. Plus McGahee is a better RB and a better leader.
