Horse Tracks: Ronnie Hillman, Denver Broncos exchange contract proposals

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The cap-strapped Denver Broncos appear to have had a change of heart on Ronnie Hillman as they have exchanged contract proposals with the free agent running back.

Hillman has received very little interest around the league since free agency began, so he would be wise to come back to Denver for another shot. His 2015 season started out very well, but by the playoffs he essentially disappeared out there. Not only in yards gained, but in critical mental errors.

Still, his 863 regular-season rushing yards bested C.J. Anderson's 720 rushing yards and the two seem to have a fairly nice chemistry with keeping each other fresh on the football field.
