Broncos Cut J.J Arrington

May 27, 2009

Picture 2We have breaking news straight from the Denver Posts’ Lindsay H. Jones. The Broncos have cut J.J Arrington who was recently signed this off-season. After only 5 total days of mini-camp he has reportedly underachieved and not shown Josh McDaniels any reason to keep him around.

The former Arizona Cardinals runner was signed by the Broncos during free agency to a four-year, $10 million contract. He was expected to be a specialist when running on third downs, but as you can see, that will not be happening. 

This I thought was going to come eventually but it is surprising it came this soon. That leaves the current running backs on the roster to Knowshon Moreno, Darius Walker, Correll Buckhalter, Ryan Torain, LaMont Jordan and Peyton Hillis. 

We will receive $1.8 million signing bonus hit though. So we can let the destruction of the backfield begin as we start to get rid of plenty of running backs.

UPDATE: The Denver Post is now reporting that the reason that Arrington was cut was that he failed his physical and will be out the season with an ankle injury. Best of luck to J.J in his recoveries!

    what the hell is McHoodie doing? why does he sign players for big bucks and then release them? does he really know what he wants? What about getting some big d-linemen who can play?

      I agree Jose, it sometimes can just not make sense. With this recent update, I have to ask myself: how did we not catch this before we signed him??? I think McD has made some very rookie mistakes but we actually have an article coming up on the site on why we probably haven’t gotten big Defensive Linemen. You should read it.

      You’re right, why cut a guy who didn’t pass a physical? (sarcasm).
