07:28 PM ET 06.17 | As the Broncos wrapped up their minicamp at Dove Valley, a funny thing happened with the running backs. A swarm of media swamped Montee Ball, the rookie, beneath an octopus of digital recorders and TV cameras. Meanwhile, the running back who would be the starter right now, Ronnie Hillman, barely drew a crowd. Same for veteran Knowshon Moreno. Confusing? I thought so, too. So let's try to clarify any confusion with the Broncos running back situation - starting with the sudden release of Willis McGahee, the former starter. Why was McGahee cut loose? Foremost, he's not healthy. I have it on good authority that's what the Broncos believe. It's why McGahee was afforded only limited carries in the mandatory minicamp. It's the No. 1 reason he's on the job market for a new gig.

Its deja vu all over again.

No No No - earlier it was a clip from the Colorado Springs Gazette. This is a clip from the Sacramento Bee.

Whole different animal.
