Willis amassed 731 yards on 167 carries with 4 Touchdowns rushing and another 221 yards on 26 catches this season.

McGahee is making $2.0 Million this year and scheduled to earn $2.5 Million in 2013, so he should return as the Broncos' starter in 2013. The Broncos are left with Ronnie Hillman, Lance Ball and Knowshon Moreno to tote the rock.
