This actually wasn't a big story but it's under the NFL Free Agency watch.
The team has agreed to four-year contracts with running backs J.J. Arrington and Correll Buckhalter.
I guess Denver wants to make sure they arn't going to have the same problems last year at running back that they currently have 9 running backs and 3 full backs, but of course I'd assume some are getting cut.. but who? Torain, Young, Pope and Hillis all proved their worth.

These could be valuable pick ups, obviously both of these players aren't number ones, but they are ready when they are called upon. Also most of the time Denver running back system is amazing, so they'll definitely benefit from playing there in my opinion.

Yeah, don't sleep on Buckhalter. No one knows who he is because he spent most of his early years on IR, and then is #2 in a system that ignores the run 70% of the time. But given the opportunity when healthy he can break a big gain randomly when you least expect it. And you know he can catch out of the backfield as well. If the new Denver regime commits to running the football he could prove to be a dangerous combo runner.

I wouldn't call him a #1 either though.
