Broncos Beat: RB Ronnie Hillman appears unlikely to make roster

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said last week that running back Ronnie Hillman is in “a helluva battle” to make the 53-man roster. It appears that Hillman is losing that battle.

Mike Klis of KUSA reports that it would now be a surprise if Hillman makes the team. That’s a surprise, considering the Broncos re-signed Hillman to a one-year, $2 million contract with $600,000 guaranteed this offseason.

Fantasy Impact:

C.J. Anderson is the clear starter in Denver and fourth-round pick Devontae Booker is a lock to make the roster as well. That leaves Hillman competing with Kapri Bipps for what is likely a third and final roster spot. Bipps has played well enough in the preseason that the Broncos would likely prefer to keep him at his $525,000 base salary than Hillman at the $1.4 million remaining they’ll have to pay him if he makes the roster. Hillman should catch on somewhere if he's let go as there are several teams, like the Patriots and Redskins, who may be interested in adding a back.
