Wish the Broncos would reach out and hand Hillman a one way ticket out of town.

Giving up on that backwards screen pass should've sealed his fate. Just get a rookie and let Bibbs/Thompson go at it for a spot.

You have to seriously wonder about the talent management on the offensive side.

Better than anyone on the roster except CJ. No offers yet so price just might be right.

Hopefully that is a huge learning lesson for him. I wouldn't mind seeing him back, but only at a friendly price. I would in no way go into a bidding for him. That backward screen gaff really ticked me off.

You know what's ever better? A rookie RB on a 4 year deal for peanuts with minimal NFL tread on the tires and the ability to actually run after a lateral.

Probably for a low 1 year deal, to add with CJ, and a rookie. I don't see Kapri Bibbs, Cyrus Gray, or Juwan Thompson making this team.

I have never been a huge Hillman fan. But he'd only be getting the vet min and he has experience in the system. There seems to be very little downside. I doubt it would prevent us from drafting a RB or giving the other guys on the roster a chance to compete for RB2 or even RB1

I'd bring him back. It's not his fault the Broncos keep trying to make him the starter. He's a 3rd down, change of pace back. Draft a stud in the first 4 rounds, pair him with CJ and bring in Hillman for a change of pace.

I just watched the Vikings game yesterday, where Hillman took the pitch to the left and went 70 yards for the TD. There's talent there.

And, don't forget our offensive line was one of the worst in football last year. What can these guys do with a top 10 offensive line?

Fits Elways mo. Fill all needs that you can in free agency, so you have very few glaring needs and can just take best player available.

If he's coming in for the NFL minimum with no guaranteed money then fine, we can cut his ass if he doesn't beat out any rookies or Bibbs.

Truth here....

We're going to take a RB in the 1st three rounds, he alleviates that requirement.

Get Keith Marshall from UGA and let Hillman go elsewhere.
