Broncos Sign 8th RB!

Postby madaslives911 » Fri May 08, 2009 2:06 pm

Broncos new coach Josh McDaniels must be thinking he can't have enough running backs or he might lose his job.

McDaniels added former Houston Texans running back Darius Walker Thursday to its stable of backfield mates for the reworked Denver offense.

The Broncos lost seven running backs to injuries last season.

In the off-season the Broncos fired longtime Coach Mike Shanahan.

Put two and two together and McDaniels must add up to eight (running backs). How else can you explain foraging for more running backs?

Walker, 23, joins top draft pick Knowshon Moreno, Correll Buckhalter, J.J. Arrington, LaMont Jordan, Peyton Hillis, Ryan Torain and undrafted rookie Kestahn Moore in the crowded running back mix.

Hillis and Torain, whose seasons ended in 2008 on the injured reserve list, are the lone returnees from last year. The Broncos released another oft-injured back, Selvin Young, last week. Walker is a former Notre Dame star and an undrafted free agent. He split time between the Houston Texans and St. Louis Rams in 2008. He played in just four games for the Texans in 2007, rushing for 264 yards on 58 carries. He also had 13 catches for 81 yards. His best game that year was in a 31-13 victory over the Broncos on Dec. 13, 2007 when Walker rushed for 66 yards on 13 carries, a 5.1-yard average.
