"Per a league source, the Broncos are likely to add the former first-round pick, whose rookie contract with the Steelers officially expired earlier today."

Not a big fan of his personally but if he contributes on the field and helps win us a SB then fine. I wonder if they cut KM or even Willis after they sign him?

Aside from some dbag stuff, I don't get the hate for him. He's a solid back.

I would rather see them keep Willis and cut KM even though we would only save about $1.8 mil. Willis and Mendenhall would be a great rotation with Hillman as the change of pace back.

I like it if he's paired up with another back. I would prefer if we drafted one.

Mendenhall, Hillman, Drafted Back

He is soft and Injury prone. Looks like a big back plays like a small one.

He fits in with John fox's type of back. But how does he fit as a manning back? Does he have hands? I always liked him in pittsburgh

Honestly, I don't think Mendenhall is that much of an upgrade over Willis. And McGahee seems like much less of a d-bag.

Hopefully, they draft a young back too.

Not sure why, but when I see Rex Burkhead, I think Fox kind of back. Odd feeling I'm getting.

I'm all for it. Who else would you rather have Moreno-Bush? Yuk! Greene...Yuk?

How much do you think Steven Jackson is going to want?

I think this is a good signing if we get him. I agree...I would keep Magahee and pair him with Mendenhall...with Hillman as the change of pace....and Moreno the #4 insurance policy. Bye, Bye, Ball!

Dress up like Bin Laden and go cheer for him. I hope the Broncos pay him enough that he doesn't feel like a slave.

I've been reading the Steelers boards today. They all think he's is awful and are more than happy he is gone. That's not encouraging. I hope its not a significant amount of money.
