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.
