Broncos' Moreno has made most of second chance

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- His return from offseason knee surgery still a few days away, Knowshon Moreno sauntered over to the sideline one hot August afternoon in training camp. In front of him were two young running backs having trouble picking up first downs and blitzes.

Asked who he thought would win the featured role in the Denver Broncos' backfield, Moreno nodded and flashed a sneaky smile, then spun back to the trainer's room.

Neither Ronnie Hillman nor Montee Ball would pry the football from his grasp, something nobody's been able to do since Atlanta linebacker Stephen Nicholas stripped him on Sept. 17, 2012, which resulted in Moreno's two-month banishment to the scout team.

That penance left Moreno determined "if I ever do get that call again" to let neither the opportunity nor the football slip through his grasp again.
