Houston Texans: Five free agent RB options
Ronnie Hillman, Denver Broncos, 24 years old
The Denver Broncos at times have featured a scary backfield tandem with C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman, and now Hillman enters 2016 as a potential free agent.
Hillman was selected in the third round of the 2012 draft by the Broncos and despite never become the full time feature back, he has always showed flashes while splitting time with other backs.
In 2015, Hillman enjoyed his most successful season as he recorded 863 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. For his career he now has 1,842 yards and 12 touchdowns on 452 carries (4.1 yards per carry) and added another 431 yards and a score on 67 receptions.
At 5’9″ and 200 pounds, he may not have ideal feature back size, but could be incredibly successful in the Houston offense that spreads people out with extra receivers and utilizes backs in the passing game.
