Well, word out of Denver is Knowshon Moreno is now the 3rd RB on the Depth Chart and is in danger of being cut. Moreno was a 1st Round pick back in 2009 out of Georgia. He ran for 974 yards and 7TDs along with 213 Receiving while adding another 2TDs during his Rookie Year. His 2nd year he ran for 779 and 5TDs, while adding another 372 Receiving and 3TDs more. His 2011 Season was cut short with a Torn ACL, he only had 179 yards on the ground with 0 TDs and 101 Receiving with 1TD. His position with the Broncos is now very unsteady and he is no longer their Starter or Feature Back. Many believe he is in line to be cut or traded before the season starts.
Could Moreno Help Lions.???
Moreno is still only 24 years old, he is 5"11, 200lb and has quality NFL experience. He is coming back from a serious injury and could be slowed at first by it. Stafford and Moreno were College teammates at Georgia and also good friends. If Moreno was cut, I see no reason why the Lions couldn't give him a look in are backfield, especially if we keep 4 or 5 RB's. The most I would trade for him is a 7th Round pick and I think Stafford would be willing to put in a good word on Knowshon.
