Broncos Aren’t Releasing RB Montee Ball

Mike Klis of 9News is reporting that the Broncos are not releasing former second-round RB Montee Ball Saturday.

Yesterday, reports surfaced that the team was shopping ball around in the trade market, and teams like the Texans and Cowboys came up a potential options.

However, reports quickly shot down the idea of the Cowboys trading for Ball.

Ball, 24, is entering the third year of his four-year, $3.53 million rookie contract that included a $964,896 signing bonus. He stands to make base salaries of $594,938 and $752,407 over the next two years.

According to OverTheCap.com, trading Ball would free up $495,060 in cap space while creating $449,756 in dead money.

In 2014, Ball was limited to appearing in just five games and rushing for 172 yards on 55 carries (3.1 YPC) to go along with nine receptions for 62 yards receiving and one total touchdown for the Broncos.
