“I plan on coming back,” Moreno said, via Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post. “I feel good. I feel healthy. I’m fully recovered. So I’m just doing the things I have to right now, just staying in shape and seeing where that goes.”
Moreno specifically mentioned that he would like to return to either the Broncos or Dolphins, given his ties to the organization. However, Moreno said that he’d be willing to sign with any team interested in giving him a shot.
The free agent market still includes a number of notable running backs right now, so it could prove to be difficult for Moreno to secure an opportunity before the start of the 2016 season.
Moreno, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2009. He spent five years in Denver before signing a one-year contract with the Dolphins in March of 2014.
Unfortunately for Moreno, he suffered a torn ACL a few weeks into the 2014 season. The injury was bad enough that it prevented him catching on with another team last year and led to speculation he could be done in the NFL.
In 2014, Moreno appeared in three games for the Dolphins and ran for 148 yards on 31 carries (4.8 YPC) to go along with one reception for eight yards receiving and one total touchdown.
