Default Darius Walker Signs With The Broncos

http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/...h-the-broncos/

According to the Twitter account of agent Drew Rosenhaus, running back Darius Walker has signed a two-year deal with the Denver Broncos.

Walker, a former Notre Dame tailback who was undrafted upon leaving school a year early, played for the Texans in 2007, and bounced on and off the team’s roster in 2008.

In Denver, Walker joins a very crowded house at the running back position.

Weird signing... a few years ago I was all for Darius Walker. But now the stable is full.

I guess this pretty much confirms the rumors of Knowshons recent injury.

McDaniels is going to build on the success of the Wildcat with the Thundercat offense which will feature seven runningbacks on the field at the same time. It will also involve Lonnie Paxton. You heard it here first.

Selvin's replacement considering Torain will almost certainly begin the season on PUP again.

Well this move goes a long way towards relieving my concerns about our RB depth this year. I hope we cut one of our Dline scrubs to make room.

Didn't you get the memo? These runningbacks will solve the Defensive line problems...

Nothing would surprise me in 09 is the thing. I do not want to trade Hillis EVER.

It's a way to psychologically prepare themselves. They fear losing him and so they predict it in an attempt to be ready emotionally.

Whatever. if we signed some DL with similar chances to make the team as walker, some a-hole would put up the Lombardi and say "i dont get why we sign someone no one wants" relax

Off the top of my head:
Last season at this time:
Andre Hall
Pittman
Young
Hillis
Torain
AlDridge
Larsen (I'm assuming Shanny really had no intention of him being a linebacker)

This year:
Hillis
Torain
Walker
Jordan
Arrington
Buckhalter
Knowshon

Same amount of runners, I don't recall anyone saying a word about it last year? I could easily be forgetting someone though. Also I really don't see Torain making the team. I personally like him, but he's definitely got Shanny player written all over him, and most of those guys don't seem too safe here.

I think the plan is to horde all the runningbacks and then when the season starts and teams need RBs because theirs got hurt, well jack up the price

Bold move cotton, lets see it if pays off

Competition for a handful of spots down to Moreno, Jordan, Buck, Arrington, Hillis, and now Walker. Everyone but Jordan, to my knowledge, can run and catch. Good backfield depth>Andre ****ing Hall, PJ Pope, and Co.
