Broncos Let Veteran RB Lance Ball Go
Even on a team trying to build its roster for a Super Bowl run, there is room for youth.
The Broncos released veteran running back Lance Ball on Friday, making way for undrafted rookie C.J. Anderson.
Ever dependable during his three seasons with the Broncos, Ball was classy through the end.
"Closing another chapter in my book, thanks to the Broncos organization for the years of great memories and also the fans who supported me!" Ball wrote on his Twitter account.
The emergence of Anderson, a California product who gained 69 yards on 15 carries in the preseason opener at San Francisco, and Ball's $1.323 million salary as a restricted free agent worked against Ball.
Ball played briefly with Peyton Manning
