Ronnie Hillman, Broncos in contract talks


The Denver Broncos are trying to keep from losing any more players this offseason and did a good job of that by re-signing running back C.J. Anderson to an offer sheet. They are trying to re-sign fellow running back Ronnie Hillman as they are currently in contract talks with him.

According to 9News in Denver, the two have exchanged contract proposals over the last few days and it looks like Hillman could be coming back to Denver very soon. This would be huge for the Broncos as he was one of their best players last season.

Hillman came to the Broncos as a third-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. He served as a primary backup to Knowshon Moreno for two seasons and then becoming an off-an-on starter over the last two seasons.

During the 2015 season, Ronnie Hillman led the team in rushing with 863 yards, but did not record any yards in Super Bowl 50. As for Anderson, he signed a new contract with the Broncos for four years worth $18 million.
