The Denver Broncos released running back Willis McGahee on Thursday, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
McGahee, pushing 32, is coming off a significant knee injury that sidelined him for the final two months last season and was set to make $2.5 million in 2013. McGahee said earlier this week that he's 100 percent now and has no restrictions running.
A couple seasons ago, I'd be all over Miami going after him. Not so much anymore. Pushing 32 and coming off a pretty significant injury. Although, he claims that he is 100% and ready to go. Would be an upgrade over DT for sure. But I don't see us going after him. Pretty interesting that he was released. I had recently read where the Broncos said he would be the starter for them. Interesting.
