NFL Rumors: Ronnie Hillman retained by Broncos, $2 million re-sign deal

Ronnie Hillman is the center of NFL rumors about his reported $2 million re-sign deal with the Denver Broncos. Though there is still no official confirmation from both parties, it has been reported that Hillman has been given a one-year contract deal to stay for another season with the Broncos.

According to SB Nation, the report on contract extension given to the Broncos running back was twitted by Mike Klis of 9news. The said information came directly from an anonymous NFL source as stipulated on the social media post.

This news of a one-year extension for the service of Hillman is indeed favorable for the Broncos, especially that Hillman has been effective in his position as a running back. In their recent Super Bowl triumph, Hillman was in a way instrumental in achieving Broncos’ third NFL championship.

Hillman may be considered as a loyal Broncos player, for he did not opt to transfer to any team despite his relative popularity and significant achievements throughout his career.

After staying with the Broncos for almost four seasons, it was in 2015 that Hillman finally managed to showcase his best NFL performance and achieve some career-highs. And perhaps such great improvement is the reason why Broncos decided to retain him in the roster under a $2 million contract deal.

With this turn of events, it is almost expected from Hillman to replicate or even surpass his record and achievements. Back in 2015, Hillman appeared in all 16 games for his franchise while running 863 yards on 207 carries in the last season. Thus proving his worth for the reported new contract deal that was given to him.

Apart from Hillman, double efforts are also expected from fellow tailback C.J. Anderson and other veteran players in the franchise. They, too are left with the challenge of a repeat NFL title and the loss of Peyton Manning to retirement.
