McGahee is Broncos’ ‘big back': It’s been reported repeatedly that the Denver Broncos are in search of a big running back to add to the backfield. Turns out, they might already have that guy. John Elway said in a press conference Monday that Willis McGahee “is that big back for us right now”. He also went on to mention Ronnie Hillman as a change-of-pace option for the team. That would seem to leave little for Knowshon Moreno to do. Of course, this could all be a smokescreen and the Broncos could still draft a running back later this week. Stay tuned.
Britt’s knee rehab going well: It’s taken Kenny Britt some time to recover from the major knee injury that cost him most of 2011 and sapped his skills in 2012. But if his teammates at Titans mini-camp are any indication, Britt’s back to his old self. We’re all still waiting on the big breakout season from the talented wideout. With 2013 being a contract year for Britt, it could be a case of now or never. He’ll rank as a No. 3 receiver with sleeper potential until we see otherwise.
Graham seeking opportunity: Now that Donald Jones and David Nelson are gone from Buffalo, it would appear to open things up for T.J. Graham to be a No. 2 receiver option for the Bills. As a rookie last season, the speedster caught 31 passes for 322 yards and a touchdown. There’s certainly a chance he could surpass those numbers, but it’s dependent upon the quarterback situation … which is far from settled in Buffalo. It’s likely to be Kevin Kolb, but expect some competition in camp. Either way, the guy tossing passes won’t inspire enough confidence to make Graham more than a late-round flier in most leagues.
