The Facts: The Broncos announced the release of McGahee on Thursday.
Diehards Line:The move isn't a total surprise. The addition of rookie Montee Ball and continuing development of Ronnie Hillman made the veteran McGahee expendable. It remains to be seen if Knowshon Moreno, still recovering from knee surgery, will make the final cut. But it seems even safer to assume Ball is ready for a leading role.
