Broncos sign Ball, Webster

Ball AP

When it comes to running backs, the prevailing attitude in the NFL is out with the old, in with the new.

The Broncos have applied that literally.  On the same day they cut veteran running back Willis McGahee, the Broncos signed rookie running back Montee Ball.

Also signed was third-round cornerback Kayvon Webster, putting all Denver draft picks under contract expect first-round defensive tackle Sylvester Williams.

Ball, a second-round pick whom some regarded as the best running back in the draft, will have a chance to pay immediate dividends, given the departure of McGahee.

    Montee Ball is a stud. He was so fun to watch at Wisconsin. Elusive, physical, good blocker, good receiver out of the backfield.

    This is the perfect situation for a back as Peyton will draw most of the defensive attention to the passing game. If Ball can bring his game to the next level, he will be an all-pro someday.

    Hopefully he’ll change his number to #23 now, not a fan of #38 lol….

    The best running back in this draft goes by the name of Marcus Lattimore.

    I hate to see Willis go but man… I can not wait to see this kid running for my Broncos.

    Kayvon Webster was one of the major sleepers of the draft and I’m sure not a lot of fans are that familiar with him. He has the body control of Brian Dawkins or Troy Polomalu which is very rare. Which translates into Kayvon being able to break down and tackle well at high speeds. Even from just a takling perspective alone he was fun to watch. I’m very curious on how he’ll be used.
