MIAMI (AP) - Miami Dolphins newcomer Knowshon Moreno showed last year he can run, catch and block, and they're counting on him to do all three a lot.
Moreno signed a $3.275 million, one-year contract to play for Miami after five seasons with the Denver Broncos. He helped them reach the Super Bowl last year when he rushed for 1,038 yards, caught 60 passes, scored 13 touchdowns and reinforced his reputation as a blocker of blitzing linebackers.
His pass-catching skills should make him a valuable option for quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who was sacked a franchise-record 58 times last year.
The Broncos made Moreno the 12th overall pick in the 2009 draft, and he had his best season last year. But 2013 rookie Montee Ball made Moreno expendable in Denver.
