Running back: Freeman should not be counted out

Phillip Lindsay was the Broncos’ rookie back who made the Pro Bowl last year, but his great performance shouldn’t cause anyone to forget about how good Royce Freeman was before his ankle injury.

It sounds like he’s looking good at OTAs.

Let’s not forget that Freeman is the one who won the Broncos’ starting job out of camp last offseason, and it wasn’t because he was the highest drafted back on the team. He won the job.

He’s going to be really good when healthy and the Broncos know they have an awesome 1-2 punch on their hands.

Devontae Booker shouldn’t be counted out to play a big role this year, either.
