Moreno, Ayers no shows at Broncos training camp workout
AP Sports Writer
ENGLEWOOD, Colorado – First-round picks Knowshon Moreno and Robert Ayers were no shows Monday when the Denver Broncos gathered for their first training camp workout.
Moreno, a running back out of Georgia, and Ayers, a pass rusher from Tennessee, were the only members of coach Josh McDaniels’ first draft class not to agree to deals in time for the first workout. The other eight were all signed by Sunday night.
The rookies and rehabbers started camp Monday. The veterans are scheduled to report Thursday, with practice beginning the next morning, the official start of camp.
Denver used the 12th pick to take Moreno, despite bringing in free agent tailbacks LaMont Jordan and Correll Buckhalter in the offseason.
Ayers was selected at No. 18.
