Is Royce Freeman on the Broncos roster bubble?

New, comments

The signing of Melvin Gordon makes Freeman’s path to the Broncos roster a little more difficult.

When the Denver Broncos signed Melvin Gordon, it was a bit of surprise.

Since it’s been a few months, hopefully Broncos Country has come around to the idea of Gordon in the Broncos backfield. I liked the move when the deal was announced in March, and still do. In my mind, Gordon makes Denver’s offense better.

It also brought forth a predicament — what does it mean for Royce Freeman? Is the third-year running back on the bubble?

On Friday’s Broncos Country Tonight, MHR’s Joe Rowles answered that question with Ryan Edwards and Benjamin Allbright.

In my mind, Freeman is on the bubble and his path to the Broncos roster is narrow. But we’ll see. What will make the ultimate determination is the value Freeman brings to those he’s competing against and how many running backs Denver decides to keep.
