Willis McGahee a handcuff and TD vulture

Word from the land of the Denver Broncos this offseason had the organization wanting to upgrade its running back situation, as Knowshon Moreno, as many fantasy owners are well aware of, has been a relative disappointment. We heard about DeAngelo Williams, Ahmad Bradshaw and perhaps even Ronnie Brown as options. So excuse me if I can't muster up much excitement over veteran Willis McGahee being given a three-year deal. Frankly, I think this could be implied as good news for Moreno; certainly it could have been worse for him in a pure platoon situation, like the one new coach John Fox seemed so fond of in Carolina, or by flat-out being the backup.
