Beat reporter Mike Kilis tweets, "Barring the unexpected, it appears coveted free agent RB Theo Riddick will sign with the Broncos later this week, per source. Saints were also in on Riddick and several other teams called on former Lion. Appears Elway about to give Joe Flacco a new weapon."
Theo Riddick joins the Broncos for the 2019 season and is the only running back to catch 50 or more passes over the last four seasons and will help a thin Broncos receiving core. There are multiple reports of Phillip Lindsay seeing more work as a receiver this year and this signing likely dampens that receiving upside, but only to a degree. Riddick's presence could possibly push Devontae Booker off the team as well.
