Former Arizona Cardinals (and Denver Broncos) running back J.J. Arrington signed a one-year deal with the Broncos Thursday, FOX 31’s Josina Anderson reports. CBS’ Vic Lombardi has since confirmed the signing.

Arrington, 27, originally signed a four-year, $10 million deal with the Broncos a year ago, one month after undergoing knee surgery. He was cut in May after he failed his physical.

The move gives the Broncos a head start on what is surely to be another active free agency period in Denver. The 2010 league year, in which trade talks can officially resume and 2010 free agents become available, begins Friday.

Arrington was a second-round draft pick by the Cardinals in 2005.

The Arrington signing was a big mistake from last offseason, so the Broncos are playing it safe with a one-year deal this time around. With Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter (and Peyton Hillis) still under fold, the move also suggests the Broncos probably won’t be heading in a Ladainian Tomlinson-type direction in free agency.

    Only one question… why?

  • DenversFinest

    Why not, we need RB help….he's as good if not better than anyone we got now including no speed Moreno. I got a feeling about Marshall, he goes tonight to the Seachickens, hopefully for their 1st 1st round pick.

    We might as well just make it an annual thing, no?

    Just kidding, I think this is more of a special teams move then anything. Getting Bucky off of kick returns and providing a back in the rotation that well end up giving Denver MORE bang for their BUCK (get it!).

    What does this all mean for Hillis, maybe he becomes the official fullback (if he can knock off Spencer Larsen or of Larsen goes back to linebacker), if Hillis can't make the switch I see his prospects in Denver getting slim.

    My reaction as well. He is cheap depth, if he makes the team.

    Now back to the lines.
