Being arrested on the suspicion of drunk driving is not exactly the formula a player on the roster bubble should follow.

That is the position Denver running back Knowshon Moreno is reportedly in. A Denver television station reported that the No. 12 overall pick of the 2009 draft was arrested on drunken driving charges near Denver in his Bentley convertible.

Moreno is rehabilitating a torn ACL he suffered during the season. Denver is expected to bring in a running back either early in the draft or in free agency. Moreno lost his starting job to Willis McGahee last season.

His best chances of having a role in Denver in 2012 is probably as a third-down back.

"We take the incident involving Knowshon Moreno very seriously, and are thoroughly reviewing this matter," the team said in a statement. "Our organization will continue to gather information and closely monitor this issue while the legal process takes its course."

Denver linebacker D.J. Williams and kicker Matt Prater have been arrested for drunk driving in the past.

In other AFC West notes:

Raiders’ legend Willie Brown is not currently listed on the team’s list of coaches.

The Raiders have made their primary coaching additions, but they still have some hires to make.

Denver quarterback Tim Tebow said in a radio interview that he was a Dallas Cowboys’ fan growing up.
