signed speedster RB Marcus Thigpen

The Broncos added another RB to bolster depth at a position that's been thin because of the waiver of Torain and the injury to Moreno in the opening game.


Marcus Thigpen

 

I wanted to post something on Thigpen because I think he's an interesting talent. I won't attempt to research him at this time but I recall reading about him in my pre-draft analysis. Please add any information you may have on him since this is quick, informal post.

Thigpen belongs on my list of darkhorse roster surprises. 

Here's why he could make roster:

  • Speed, speed, speed. The one thing we lack at RB is a speed back and he could give that to us.
  • Return ability; he was one top the top return specialists in the draft and there a signs that they're still looking for a returner. My recollection is that he had a number of returns for touchdowns in the junior year but came back to earth in his senior year.
  • A good third down back like Arrington, whose position we never quite filled after he was released.
  • Receiving ability. Indiana tried to convert him into a WR and he has quite a few receptions for his career.

 

The bottom line is he fits our needs in a number of ways, and he'd also be a very good choice for the practice squad, too. (BTW - those of you who liked the idea of Alridge will like this guy)
