If Cheaps fans are adept at anything, it's in congenializing suck.

kind of saw this coming, he was a great help to the team and really filled in as a leader but with the depth at running back this year and his fumble and injury issues it wasn't meant to be. I think they cut him this early so that he would have a better chance catching on elsewhere. I wish him the best, he was a great asset for the last couple years.

Yeah, he was a good signing. I wonder if SD is his next stop. He still has something in the tank I believe. Denver probably will pick up another RB or two somewhere for camp. Only six RB's heading into camp doesn't sound like enough.

I think they are liking what they see from ball and reckon for him to be the starter. Hillman and Moreno sharing most of the rest of the carries. Still not sure we'll see a 1,000 yard rusher here again for a while, however good Ball may or may not be, I think we're going to spread it around a bit. Moreno's versatility seems to be keeping him in the frame (for now at least)

After drafting Montee wasn't this pretty much a foregone conclusion?

Really hope we're able to get those tough yards in big games.

I'm a bit surprised they cut him this early. Part of it must have been veteran courtesy to see if he can sign with another team early. Pretty hard to make a team as a 30 + year-old third string RB, who doesn't play special teams. I wonder if KM makes the roster, or if they're going to cut bait with him too.

We don't save much by cutting him and honestly, who is better than him outside of Montee and Hillman?

When one, original thread just isn't enough to announce this news.

OP should delete this whole thing.

This is what happens when you fumble, get old and slow, and the team drafts RB in back to back yrs. I doubt he catches on anywhere unless a rash of injuries hits somewhere.

So do we pick up either Michael Turner, Beanie Wells, Cedric Benson or Brandon Jacobs?

I think between Moreno, Ball, Hester, and Hillman, there is no room for a retread. Otherwise they would have kept Willis.

Assuming they even keep him, Hester is cheaper and plays ST's.

McGahee said he has a list of teams that he wouldn't mind signing with.

"There are a lot of places I wouldn't mind playing. You got Miami, Dallas, Green Bay, San Diego, Oakland. That's not necessarily my order of preference, though. All of those teams I mentioned I would go to with no problems," he said.


One team he seemed to leave out, lol.

Too much new young talent, this reflects their confidence that Ball and Hillman are gonna be ready for prime time with Hester doing short yardage/ goal line and pass protect as needed ... Though Hillman and Ball will both do pass protect as well ... And Knowshon as a fourth backup... Likely CJ on practice squad in case anyone goes down.

Saves some bucks to pay Clady with as well. Lets get Clady into Camp on time.
