According to USA Today’s Tom Pelissero, the team has also considered multiple free-agent running backs, including former Denver Broncos rusher Ronnie Hillman.
Hillman has spent the majority of his four-year career working within Denver’s running-back-by-committee approach. His biggest season came in 2015, when he carried the ball 207 times for 863 yards and seven touchdowns, all team highs. Still, the cash-strapped Broncos did not have the available funds to retain him. Hillman has yet to sign with another team.
The Packers did re-sign James Starks to a two year deal and they also have Eddie Lacy in a weight loss program.
