Is Knowshon Moreno done in Denver?
Going into his fourth year as a pro, it appears that Moreno could be one of those performers that sits not-so-nicely between the NCAA ranks and the NFL.
Since coming to Denver, he has had some nice spurts, but overall, he has not played up to all of the noise that was a part of his entry package.
Injuries perhaps may have anchored him but in three previous years he hasn’t broken the 1,000 yards milestone. He has a total of 12 rushing TDs, none of which came in 2011. Of his six career receiving TDs one of those came in 2011.
When you compare each season, his rookie season by far was his best year and his numbers have plunged ever since albeit he only played in seven contests in 2011.
So when Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post makes a statement like he’s “fighting” for a roster spot, it’s easy to buy into.
The Broncos are smitten with rookie Ronnie Hillman and Willis McGhee is the type of back coach John Fox has always relished.
The hope for Knowshon is that he’s putting the work in to reestablish his game and perhaps he can remerge in one of the many cities that need a stable RB.
Numbers aside, this young man is only 24 years old, plays reckless when he’s healthy and can has the potential to mark his territory elsewhere.
If not, he could fade to black much to early and with none of the fanfare that got him to this point. That would be a shame.
