Montee Ball reacts to McGahee cut

By Bill Williamson

On the day the Denver Broncos cut veteran running back Willis McGahee, they signed his replacement.

Denver signed running back Montee Ball -- the team's second-round pick -- and cornerback Kayvon Webster -- the team's third-round pick. Denver’s lone remaining unsigned draft pick is first-round pick Sylvester Williams.

Ball is expected to be the team’s starter, though, he was sorry to see McGahee go.

“It’s a business. I had nothing to do with it,” Ball said. “The couple days I had with McGahee were kind of special because the guy is a great man. He’s a great man and I most definitely wish him the best. Like I said, it’s a business and this program is going to most definitely stay on track.”

Meanwhile, McGahee told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that San Diego and Oakland are on his initial list of his preferred teams to play for. Denver cut the running back Thursday morning.
