Two Players Who May Get Cut: What it Means

Last week, Gregg Rosental of ProFootballTalk, wrote a good article: 24 Offensive Players that Could Get Cut.

The usual suspects reside at the top of the list--Vince Young, Reggie Bush, and Donovan McNabb--but I am more interested in the last few players named.

Rosenthal lists Bronco running backs Correll Buckhalter and LenDale White at 20 and 21 respectively.

Now, Buckhalter is a veteran with lots of mileage on him and underachiever White has a long list of off-field problems that has certainly impacted his athletic ability, but both are physical runners and either would seem to blend well with Denver's expected running game emphasis.

For years, new Bronco coach John Fox employed a two-headed monster for an effective ground game at Carolina.

Not too long ago, Fox's offense featured bruiser Jonathan Stewart and speedy DeAngelo Williams--both who gained over 1,000 yards rushing.

Now at Denver, I'd expect Fox to tandem talented speed back Knowshon Moreno with someone big and strong.

If not Buckhalter or White, then who?  Lance Ball?

It will worth watching the free-agency carousel this week to see if Denver grabs a veteran big back; a player who will be touching the ball often and will be a late-round fantasy steal.
