Knowshon Moreno RB MIA 22 Days

Knowshon Moreno's one-year contract with the Dolphins has a base value of $3 million, including a $500,000 signing bonus.

It's a backup or committee back-type deal. Moreno's base salary is $1.975 million, with another $500,000 roster bonus, and $300,000 more in per-game roster bonuses. Moreno projects as a competitor for playing time, along with Lamar Miller. We also wouldn't be shocked if Miami drafted a tailback in May.

New Dolphins OC Bill Lazor has a run-heavy background dating back to his 2004-2007 run as an offensive assistant on Joe Gibbs' staff.

During 2004-2007, Gibbs' offenses with Lazor on staff finished 12th, fourth, eighth, and fifth in the NFL in rushing attempts. After stints in Seattle and at the University of Virginia, Lazor worked on Chip Kelly's Eagles staff last year, and Philly ranked fourth in rushing attempts. Lazor's offense figures to differ dramatically from ex-Fins OC Mike Sherman's pass-centric, sack-prone "attack."

Broncos coach John Fox stated on ESPN's NFL Insiders Monday that Denver is "definitely" open to re-signing free agent Knowshon Moreno.

This has become more and more clear as free agency has progressed. The Dolphins are the only team to have shown interest in Moreno to this point, and he left his Miami visit without a deal. Moreno stated publicly in February that his preference is to re-sign with Denver. As other NFL teams do not envision Moreno as a starting-caliber talent, the Broncos remain his ideal landing spot. He'd get another chance to hold off 2013 second-round pick Montee Ball for carries.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins "remain interested" in free agent Knowshon Moreno, and that the sides have had "continued discussions" since Moreno's Friday visit.

A deal would make sense for both sides. Moreno has generated no other known interest, and would be an obvious upgrade on Daniel Thomas. There's a good chance he'd start out the season as Miami's No. 1 back.

Free agent Knowshon Moreno left his visit with Miami without a contract.

The Dolphins are Moreno's first known visit, but it's not clear how much interest they have with Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas returning. Moreno is Rotoworld's No. 2 running back remaining in free agency, behind only Andre Brown.

Free agent Knowshon Moreno will visit the Dolphins on Friday.

It's Moreno's first-known visit of free agency, and likely a sign that his price is coming down. It's also a sign that the Dolphins won't be content to enter 2014 with same 1-2 "punch" of Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas. Despite his chilly market and limited production without Peyton Manning under center, Moreno would be the favorite to start in Miami, at least in Week 1.

Broncos GM John Elway said there's "no question we have to be better in the run game."

The Broncos have reportedly had no negotiations with free agent Knowshon Moreno.

Moreno is going to shop his breakout 2013 campaign on the open market. Of course, there's not going to be very much demand for a player that was a bust until going nuts in a Peyton Manning offense. If Moreno is disappointed with his offers, he could come crawling back to the Broncos.

A source who "actively worked the phones" on the first day of the NFL's free-agency negotiating period Saturday noted to that "there's currently no market for running backs."

This really shouldn't be a surprise because running back is a replaceable position in the NFL, and the only above-replacement-level talents in this year's class are Ben Tate and Darren McFadden. Both have checkered injury track records. If Knowshon Moreno's price stays low enough, we could see him staying in Denver. It'd be a concern for Montee Ball's 2014 fantasy outlook.
