I'd be interested as a player, but as a person...... suspended for not showing up to a game. Wasn't he the one who said "It's amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We've only heard one side..." about Osama Bin Laden?

He could break off 2 ACLs in our system.

He's only 25. He's made some verbal blunders and has had a hard time staying on the field. When he has been on the field...he either looks like a stud or fumbles the ball.

I think at the right price....he could be a nice addition with our coaching staff.

I'm all for it.

Not true at all. Let me fix that for you. When there is a good amount of open space or running lanes, he looks fantastic. He's not that impressive when things get tight. He's 225 lbs but not terribly physical for that size, I think his fumbling issues are a result of that very thing. I said it before, I think he's a beefed up track star and isn't really all that nifty on his feet. He'll blaze past guys when there's room. When there's no room, he'll look just like Tatum Bell did. Lost.

So. . . the front office thinks that having three average backs with ACL tears the past few seasons would be a good idea? Jesus Christ. **** that plan. ****in' drunk ass Elway and pot belly Pat Bowlen.

It has something to do with Fox's obsession with mediocre running backs. He is as bad at finding them as Shanny is good.

Been browsing some Steelers boards and Tweets. You could substitute his name for Knowshon and it would read exactly as it has here!

Mendenhall is better than Moreno when he's healthy. Unfortunately, he can't stay healthy. Overall this does not seem like the way to fix our running back situation.

I would rather have Mendenhall than Green...

But I would much rather purge the team of mediocracy at the RB position. Bye bye McGahee and Moreno if it were my decision.. Get S Jax in free agency and add a big back (Bell) in the draft.

Not surprising here. It's hard to find a bellcow in today's NFL and the guy could still be one. He has a Stephen Davis type build to him which I think that John Fox likes. Probably blocks ok. Not much factor catching the ball which sucks. The last two years have been terrible for him but before that he has 1100/1200 yds rushing. He's still only 25 yrs old as well. If we can get him chained up to a decent 3 yr contract, i would be ok with it. Can't be worse than what we have at the position now.

Injured running backs are all equal.

I loved Mendenhal coming out of college, and I believe the Broncos had a chance to draft him. He was pretty productive for the Steelers when he was healthy. But that is the question, how is that ACL. He is more of a home run threat than anyone the Broncos currently have.

I still want Stepfan Taylor out of Stanford, but he will be long gone when the Broncos draft in the second round. I believe you don't draft running backs in the 1st round, always go defense.

Stepfan looks more like a 5th rounder than 2nd. Does not have NFL wheels. Not saying he won't be good. Because I think he will but he is not a top 64 guy.

Stepfan Taylor lost a lot of money at the combine, a 4.76 is god awful

Well that could be good news for the Broncos, I for one don't put a lot of stock in how a player does at the combine. I look at a players college career and if that translates to the NFL.

Terrell Davis had a similar 40 time. Not to say Taylor will ever be that good, but it really does illustrate that there is a big difference between football speed and track speed. Terrell Davis was rather fast on the football field. Just look at all the big runs he broke off regularly. Then again Moreno ran a rather mediocre 40 and his football speed turned out to match it completely.
