Willis McGahee: Released by Broncos

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: The Broncos have released McGahee, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Recommendation: While Ronnie Hillman and Knowshon Moreno remain on the Broncos' roster, this move would appear to pave the way for rookie Montee Ball to start the season as the team's lead back. In terms of the 31-year-old McGahee, he's still a competent back when healthy, so he should find a new gig before too long. He joins a list of name brand running back free agents that also includes Michael Turner, Cedric Benson, Beanie Wells and Brandon Jacobs.
