Shanahan said Reuben Droughns could be back with the Broncos despite his wishes to be traded. However, his old starting fullback job might not be available.
"Kyle Johnson will go in as our starting fullback," Shanahan said. "Kyle had a very good year."
Shanahan also said he likes the prospect of Cecil Sapp at fullback.
Droughns was the Broncos' starting fullback last season before switching to tailback because of injuries at the position. Droughns had quick success before wearing down at the end of the season, finishing with 1,240 yards.
Droughns has attempted to cash in on his production by seeking a trade, but there has been little interest.
Shanahan said Droughns will get a chance to play if he returns and isn't upset by his trade request.
"We're allowing him to test the market," Shanahan said.
Oh sure mike just liked his TD celbration!!
