Despite the fact that they just signed running back C.J. Anderson to a four-year extension, re-signed Ronnie Hillman, and drafted Utah's Devontae Booker, the Denver Broncos might not be done bolstering the position.
According to 104.3 the FAN's Cecil Lammey, they've also reached out to former All-Pro RB Arian Foster.
Although he's the Houston Texans all-time leading rusher, Foster is coming off a season that saw him appear in just four games, due to an Achilles rupture. However, there isn't an active RB as experienced in Gary Kubiak's zone running scheme than Foster—nor one more prolific.
Thus, the Broncos are kicking the tires. Depending on where he's at health-wise, Foster could serve as a great addition to Denver's backfield, if he's willing to step in knowing he's a role player.
By the time the regular season kicks off in September, Foster will be 30 years old—the traditional point of demarcation and decline for the vast majority of running backs.
But, with question marks at quarterback, you can believe the Broncos are committed to leaning on the running game as the focal point of the offense in 2016. Control the ball, and the clock, and let the defense win the game.
Adding Foster to the mix, provided its at the right price, could be a major boon. But GM John Elway isn't about to break the bank for Foster. The Broncos already have a lot of talent—and money—tied up at the position.
