Summary

Ronnie Hillman was an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but there was little interest in his services. He returned to the Broncos on a one-year deal, but the speedy change-of-pace back is no lock for the final roster. Hillman led the team in rushing last year, but he's clearly going to take a back seat to C.J. Anderson this season. Even rookie Devontae Booker may beat out Hillman for the primary backup job behind Anderson. If he makes the team, Hillman gives the team veteran depth and a potential spot starter in case of emergency. (May 17)

Latest News

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman likely out in Denver (Sun Aug 21, 07:47 PM) - Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman has fallen to No. 3 on the depth chart, and 'it would be a surprise' if they elected to pay the remaining $1.4 million on his contract, according to 9News.com. reporter Mike Klis.

Our View: Devontae Booker appears to have the inside track for the backup job, but Kapri Bibbs has been building his status with the team and could figure into the mix too. Hillman should easily catch on elsewhere after Week 1 once injuries start to hit other team's backfields.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman to work on special teams (Sat Aug 20, 09:52 AM) - Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is expected to play on some special teams units during the preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers Saturday, Aug. 20, because he is competing for a spot on the 53-man roster.

Our View: This is a great sign for Devontae Booker's prospects as the backup to CJ Anderson. If Anderson goes down, Booker should be in line for a big leap in value.

Broncos | Ronnie Hillman has competition for job (Mon Aug 15, 10:03 PM) - Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman is facing a battle for a roster spot, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. He is getting competition from rookie RB Devontae Booker and RB Kapri Bibbs for the right to back up starter RB C.J. Anderson. Hillman is expected to see plenty of action in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the San Francisco 49ers. 'Ronnie is in a battle, a helluva a battle with Kapri and Book right now,' Kubiak said Monday, Aug. 15. 'There's no way around that. I'm just being honest with you.'

Our View: Hillman is no lock for the 53-man roster. He led the team in rushing last year, but that was because starter C.J. Anderson was bothered by ankle/toe injuries over the first half of the season. We could see Hillman make the team, but he might only be no.3 on the depth chart. Expect rookie Devontae Booker to win the primary backup job behind Anderson.
