07:00 PM ET 06.13 | Just a few days ago, Willis McGahee claimed he was the Denver Broncos starting running back. Apparently the Broncos felt very differently about that and proceeded to cut him and his salary loose on Thursday morning. But while he's once again a free agent in his career, at age 32, Willis McGahee thinks he can still hack it and plans on being healthy and playing in 2013. If he has the likelihood of landing anywhere, it would probably be Miami. The Dolphins don't have a veteran back on roster and are rolling with two young runners heading into the season. This isn't to say Miami doesn't have confidence in who they have, but McGahee could help mentor them as well as be a big help to Ryan Tannehill's offense. Green Bay drafted two rookies in Eddie Lacy and Jonathan Franklin in the draft, so McGahee is an unlikely fit with the Packers and the Chargers signed veteran backs Ronnie Brown and Danny Woodhead to compliment Ryan Mathews in their backfield. Oakland is a vortex of suck and has long been known to be the dark and deserted land where careers go to die.

Skip voluntary OTAs if you want, vets. Please see this story to see what happens.

That's one cold team out there in Denver. Elway will feel the Karma of playing chess with their players. Not good....not good.

Those are the types of comments we usually make. Now what are we supposed to do?

I do think McGahee would be a great backup, this year and the next. Health willing, as always.

Gotta admit, the "vortex of suck" comment is the first thing I remember thinking was entertaining in a Fansided article.

CFL or Arena maybe, but not in the NFL.

Fansided is the vortex of suck, so it would know.
