5 Broncos who ended the season on an encouraging note
Broncos who ended the season on a high note: Latavius Murray and Chase Edmonds, Running backs
As I discussed here, Latavius Murray has earned the right to remain a part of this team despite being 33 years old soon. He only furthered that argument on Sunday.
Murray cracked the 100-yard mark, gaining 103 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown against the Chargers. Murray has been a consistent option for a team that has dealt with a lot of issues at the position this season from a season-ending injury to its star back to a serious case of fumbilitis from a guy who is no longer on the team.
Murray can be a part of the running back stable again next year and the Broncos should have supreme confidence in his abilities going forward.
But Chase Edmonds also had a nice game and that was encouraging to see. The forgotten piece of the Bradley Chubb trade, Edmonds is still a young option that the Broncos should be excited to keep around.
Edmonds only gained 45 yards on the ground in this game but he showed good vision and quickness on a few of his carries.
If the Broncos get Javonte Williams back at 100 percent next season and keep both Murray and Edmonds in the mix, perhaps the running back position is not that bad for this team.
