Broncos | Shanahan once again discusses running backs; Sapp in the mix too?

Sat, 03 Jun 2006 09:34:23 -0700

Bill Wilson, of the Reporter-Herald, reports Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan once again discussed his running back situation Friday, June 2. Shanahan hinted there is a chance FB Cecil Sapp would get an opportunity to earn more carries next season. "Heck, I feel Cecil Sapp could do a great job playing at the tailback position," Shanahan said. "We've got some guys there competing for the job, and even though we have some people listed as one, two, three and four, you really don't know who they're going to be until you get through the preseason." In order to earn significant time at tailback, Sapp would have to overcome frontrunners RB Ron Dayne, who is gaining steam after a comeback performance in 2005, and RB Tatum Bell, whose durability is still in question.

Broncos | Shanahan comments on the team's running back situation

Sat, 29 Apr 2006 20:04:54 -0700

Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan was asked about the team's running back situation and he replied: "I think we've been pretty successful with our running backs over the years. One of the reasons why we did (release) Mike (Anderson) is we felt very good about our running back situation. Take a guy like Ron Dayne; we've got a lot of confidence in him. We know what Tatum Bell has done. Cedric Cobbs has brought a lot to the table. We liked what we saw with the practice squad for a year. Take a look at Cecil Sapp. Cecil was very successful at the tailback in college. Cecil could come in and play extremely well. We have a number of candidates, I believe, that can get the job done for us."
