Knowshon Moreno eyeing NFL comeback

Former Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno isn't ready to hang up his cleats just yet.

Still just 28 years old, Moreno hasn't played a down in the NFL since tearing his ACL with the Dolphins in October of 2014. The former Georgia star had torn the same ACL in 2011.

"I plan on coming back," Moreno told TMZ earlier this week. "I feel good. I feel healthy. I'm fully recovered. So I'm just doing the things I have to right now, just staying in shape and seeing where that goes."

Moreno was a star on Denver's record-breaking 2013 squad, totaling 1,586 yards and 13 touchdowns as a dual-threat out of the backfield. Never an explosive speedster, though, he couldn't afford to leave any of his talent on the operating table.

It's no surprise that Moreno is eyeing his two former teams as potential landing spots. Even if the Broncos and Dolphins lack an established star at the position, it's unlikely they will turn to Moreno barring a training-camp injury this summer.
