Correll Buckhalter’ two-year run in Denver appears to be over.

Josina Anderson of FOX31 in Denver reports the veteran running back has been informed of his release. Anderson writes Buckhalter could possibly return at a lesser price.

Buckhalter had a career-high 882 yards from scrimmage at age 31 in 2009, but his production fell sharply last year. If this is it for Buckhalter, he’ll be remembered for overcoming a pair of devastating knee injuries after getting drafted in the fourth round by the Eagles in 2001.

The Broncos seem likely to invest big at running back. They could go after a big name like DeAngelo Williams, and probably need to sign another decent veteran option to fill out the roster.
