to many fumbles.  (Posted in Bucky’s area too)

After another critical fumble, the Denver Broncos have waived veteran running back Melvin Gordon according to Myles Simmons of Pro Football

The Broncos started the season with Gordon and and Javonte Williams as its top two running backs. Williams suffered a season-ending knee injury in the Week Four loss to the Raiders. Gordon has been inconsistent, rushing for 318 yards and a pair of touchdowns this season. He’s also caught 25 passes for 223 yards.  But fumbling haas been a huge problem. Gordon put the ball on the ground five times this season, including once near the goal line in Sunday’s loss to Las Vegas. That apparently proved to be too much for Denver to take.

I have a hard time ranking Gordon, Taylor and Dayne in terms of the best Buck RB.  Tier 2 is a a murders row of running backs too. 

Denver is rolling some heads in desperation. I’m glad they jettisoned Hollins. He should be a decent rotation guy at OLB. While this year has been a disaster, if they write it off and get the right coach they could probably be strong next year.
