Broncos Release RB Willis McGahee

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Denver Broncos have released RB Willis McGahee.

“I knew it was going to happen,” said McGahee, per Josina Anderson. “It is what it is. They are going younger.

“I will keep playing,” added McGahee. “I don’t feel like I have to go out there and say what I have left. I know what I can do. I’m not worried about it. Once I get the opportunity it will be all good.

McGahee reportedly mentioned that he would prefer to play for the Chargers, Cowboys, Dolphins, Packers or Raiders.

Pro Football Talk reports that the Broncos will incur $500,000 cap charges in both 2013 and 2014.

The Broncos reduced his reps during this week’s minicamp. Ronnie Hillman and rookie Montee Ball both received more work than the veteran running back, so it’s not all that surprising that they would look to move without him.

McGahee, 31, was set to make $2.5 million for the upcoming season. To make matters worse, he’s coming off of knee surgery and a broken leg, so there are plenty of question marks regarding productivity moving forward.
