- La Canfora adds that once Moreno is under contract with a team, the running back market is expected to pick up for other free agents like Maurice Jones-Drew and LeGarrette Blount.
The Broncos recently mentioned that they haven’t closed the door on possibly re-signing Moreno, but it seems unlikely that they would be willing to get involved in a bidding war with the Dolphins.
Moreno, 26, is coming off of a breakout 2013 season in which he totaled 1,039 yards rushing on 242 carries (4.3 YPC) to go along with an impressive 13 total touchdowns. He also contributed 60 receptions for 548 yards receiving last year.
We have Moreno listed as the No. 14 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
The Dolphins have already met with Moreno and are reportedly still in contact with his reps, so they appear to be the favorites.
Denver has said that they were going to allow their free agents to test the market before considering re-signing them. Last year, they drafted Montee Ball to be their running back moving forward, so there is no guarantee that they will make him the best offer.
- According to Jackson, the Dolphins and Moreno’s agent have continued discussions since his visit ended with the team last Friday.
- Jackson adds that the Dolphins view Moreno as an upgrade over Daniel Thomas, but it remains to be seen if the two sides can reach an agreement.
Outside of the Dolphins, Moreno has found little to no interest, so this could end up being his best option at this point in time.
The Miami Dolphins announced Friday that they met with free agent Knowshon Moreno this week.
Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports that there is no deal between with the sides as of now.
The Broncos have given every indicated that Moreno won’t be back next season and they are prepared to move forward with Montee Ball as their starting running back.
