From the CBS.com fantasy news:
"Knowshon Moreno is a no-show. The Denver Broncos' first-round draft pick remains unsigned early Friday and missed the official start of training camp. He's the first rookie holdout in Denver since running back Tatum Bell showed up late in 2004. Coach Josh McDaniels, commenting on Moreno and fellow rookie holdout Robert Ayers, was not happy. "I think every day that they miss hurts their opportunity to create a role on our team," McDaniels said. "Obviously, they will have a role, but they are missing meetings, installations, walk-throughs, practice time, film study and all that stuff. We are eager to have them here. We are trying as hard as we possibly can to have both of them here as fast as we can. Hopefully, that happens sooner rather than later."
This, a day or two after I drafted him. Thankfully it was a keeper league, at least. They mention that Jordan, not Buckhalter, took the initial training camp reps as the #1 RB on the squad, in Moreno's stead. If this goes on past the first week of August, it will probably all but render him a backup as the regular season starts. He could also see a decrease in production/potential, like Grant did when whining about getting a big contract based on one-half year of production.
First they run Cutler out of town, then the Marshall issue, and now this? And after getting rid of Shanahan, as a scapegoat for last year's loss to a white-hot Chargers team to knock them out of the playoffs?
