Regarding RB Ronnie Hillman offensive coordinator Adam Gase made it clear improvement is needed.
"We've talked to him, (running backs coach) Eric (Studesville) and myself, as far as: 'Hey, this is a new start to the year. Whatever happened in the past, you've got to build off it. We've just got to start over,' " Gase said Saturday after rookies practiced at Dove Valley. "His goal is to become the best running back he can. I can't say make or break, because I don't know what that is. He's got to work his butt off and make sure he puts himself in a great position to contribute this year."
It appears that C.J. Anderson has the inside track to back up Montee Ball, who seems very secure as the Broncos' RB1. Ball is likely to finish in the top 10 if he plays a full season as Denver's featured back.
