The Denver Broncos signed free-agent punter Danny Baugher on Tuesday, Head Coach Mike Shanahan announced. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Baugher (5-10, 194 lbs.) is a third-year player who entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Bengals in 2006. He spent a year with Cincy before heading to New England, went back to Cincinnati and finally landed with the Broncos after a workout Monday.

Baugher had a lot of potential coming out of college before a severe knee injury sidelined him. He comes with more baggage in addition to his injury: Baugher was arrested for an incident shortly after the Patriots released him last year, where he was allegedly heavily intoxicated and assaulted his father.

So… we drop Todd Sauerbrun, who’s a bad apple who can punt, for Danny Baugher, a bad apple who can’t? Somebody help me out here.

    Before you get overworked do you know the dispositon of what happened to him? Wasnt that was was posted here last year when Kirkus was in that fight? How do you even know this guy is just not being brought in for competion for the preseason.

    If Baugher is just preseason competition, then I’m sure the Broncos can find a punter to provide that competition who doesn’t have an arrest record.
