Report: Knowshon Moreno to visit the Dolphins Friday

New, comments

There has been rumors connecting Knowshon Moreno and the Miami Dolphins since Free Agency opened last week. Well today, Miami Herald columnist Armando Salguero has reported that former Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno will be visiting the Miami Dolphins facilities Friday.

For a player who had a very solid 2013 season for the Denver Broncos, there has been no market for the former first round pick. Moreno is coming off a career year for the Broncos where he rushed for a career high 1,038 yards, and added 60 receptions for 548 yards.

It's not a big surprise that Moreno has not be re-signed by the Broncos. Back in February NFL Networks Ian Rapoport reported that the Broncos planned on letting Moreno hit the Free Agent market, and did not expect him back in 2014.

The Denver Posts Mike Klis also has reported that the Broncos plan on relying on their young running backs this offseason, and that last seasons second round pick Montee Ball would be getting the first chance to start for the Broncos.

The Broncos want to give Ball the first chance at becoming their No. 1 running back in 2014.

Selected out of Wisconsin in the second round of the 2013 draft, Ball is expected to move up from his backup role, where he rushed for 559 yards on 4.7 yards per carry as a rookie.

Right now the Broncos have second year pros Montee Ball and C.J Anderson at running back, and right now they're your early favorites to be one and two on the depth chart. Third year pro Ronnie Hillman who spent the majority of the 2013 season on the inactive list is your third string running back right now.

Montee Ball sounds ready to carry the load for the Broncos offense if given the opportunity.

"I really think so," Ball said in the days leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII. "If it's an unfortunate situation for him(Moreno) that he's not here next year, I'll most definitely be able to carry that role."

Go Broncos!
