As head coach John Fox continues to implement his own coaching style in Denver, we hear the Broncos could look to add another running back.

Josh McDaniels' offensive strategy relied heavily on the passing attack, and the former coach brought in the players he needed to run that type of offense. With Fox's history of favoring the run, one daily team observer said he believes it is highly likely the Broncos will bring in another back to pair with RB Knowshon Moreno.

Fox made the two-back system work in Carolina, as RBs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart became one of the more dangerous RB duos in recent years. While Fox could look to steal a page from his own playbook and bring Williams — a free agent — to Denver, that would cause the team to spend a lot of money on a position that isn't as pressing a need as other spots.

Laurence Maroney will not be back with the team after struggling in '10, Correll Buckhalter seems to have lost a step and no one knows what to expect from LenDale White, who sat out all of last season with a torn Achilles.

This year's draft is fairly deep with backs who could be had in the middle rounds, and it won't be a surprise if the Broncos select a speedy back to serve as a change of pace to Moreno.
