The Denver Broncos used two of their draft picks on running backs and picked up one through the UDFA pool. Bringing in DeMarco Murray makes no sense.
DeMarco Murray has been in the NFL for quite some time now. He found success as a member of the Dallas Cowboys and had a solid career in college at the University of Oklahoma. After being released by the Tennessee Titans back in March, he is now on the search for a new team.
The NFL can be quite the interesting league. One year, you are the rushing champ. Then the next, you find yourself on a new team. While Murray does look for a new job, there have been thoughts about him joining the Denver Broncos.
John Breech over at CBS Sports evaluated the best free agents left and their potential landing spots. One of the teams that he has linked DeMarco Murray to is the Denver Broncos. He points out how the current roster could use a vet for the running backs.
Right now, the Broncos have Devontae Booker, DeAngelo Henderson, Royce Freeman, David Williams, and Phillip Lindsay on the roster. The last three I mentioned are rookies. Overall, the running backs all have three years or less in the league.
With that being said, I do not believe the Broncos would need someone like DeMarco Murray. He could bring that veteran presence, but I honestly believe John Elway wants to go younger so that a championship window stays open.
Even then, there is no need at the running back position. I believe the team is solid with what they have on the roster right now. And I do not see that changing minus injury.
As much as DeMarco Murray could help, the team appears set at running back. But that does not eliminate the possibility down the road.
