News: 7 days agoBoone appeared in eight games in 2021 and rushed four times for 35 yards while catching his only two targets for 22 yards.
Spin: Boone missed the first five games of the 2021 campaign with a quadriceps injury he suffered before the season in training camp. When the veteran running back made his return to the field, his involvement was minimal as a result of the near-even backfield split between Melvin Gordon and rookie Javonte Williams. Both backs had a strong year, so Boone played a depth role for the games in which he was active while also contributing on special teams. Boone is entering the second year of his two-year contract he signed in March of 2021, so he will likely be a member of the Broncos next season. Gordon, however, is set to become a free agent this offseason. It's possible that Boone could become Denver's de facto No. 2 running back behind Williams if Gordon signs with another team. In that scenario, Boone would hold some value in 2022 as a change-of-pace back for a team that runs the ball effectively.
