J.J. Arrington [Returns] to Denver

Last off-season the Broncos signed J.J. Arrington and Correll Buckhalter back-to-back. We all know how well Bucky turned out, but Arrington never played a down. (He did walk away with $1.8 million signing bonus though.) J.J.'s contract fell through, after he failed his physical he needed season-ending microfracture surgery on his troublesome right knee. That was back in May of 2009.

Not even a year later, the Broncos have again signed J.J. Arrington. Terms of the deal of not been disclosed. In the Cardinals '08 Super Bowl run Arrington played a big role, rushing for almost 200 yards, and catching 25+ passes. Arrington is "only" 27-years-old, and adds some depth to both the Broncos backfield and special teams. I'm sure he was cheep, and if nothing else he'll add some good "Camp Competition" this summer for the Broncos.

I'm not totally sure what to think about Arrington. This is the Broncos first signing of the year, expect more signings to come tomorrow, check back for updates!
