RUNNING BACK

Phillip Lindsay, Broncos
C.J. Anderson, Lions
Austin Ekeler, Chargers

Anderson was released after five seasons with the Broncos, and following brief stints with the Panthers and the Raiders, the running back landed with the Rams, where he became an integral part of their Super Bowl offense down the stretch. On this team I would want him in that same backup role he played behind Todd Gurley. Being a quality runner in the NFL requires the quickness and lateral agility to create your own space within confined areas. Lindsay has that. And with a sturdy rotational runner like Anderson and an electric receiving back like Ekeler, we could rotate enough to minimize the wear and tear on Lindsay’s slight frame.

The Broncos must have Sanders return healthy and productive from his Achilles injury in 2019.

... It will be up to Todd Davis and Josey Jewell during training camp to show they can be every-down guys if coach Vic Fangio opts for “nickel” as his most common sub package and wants two inside linebackers on the field.

Jordain spent 13 seasons as a player personnel assistant and area scout for the New England Patriots – where former Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler was among his finds – and past three seasons with the Houston Texans.
