Default Arrington Released

Broncos release Arrington

The Broncos today released running back J.J. Arrington after Arrington failed his physical.

Arrington, who signed with the team as a free agent from Arizona in March, had knee surgery after the Super Bowl and had been unable to participate so far in the Broncos' organized team activities.

Arrington was one of three free-agent tailbacks signed by the Broncos, and the team also drafted running back Knowshon Moreno with its top pick in the draft.

seems to me they paid little money down for a bit of insurance should the draft not pan out for them. given the output of the draft he became expendable.

If we gotta lose another RB, make it Jordan. Keep Buckhalter, Torain, and the rest. Although I doubt that'll happen since Jordan is another ex-Pat pet for McD.

agree; given the numbers we carried last year, i was wondering aloud if Selvin might get a call back . . .

Spin it all you want. No big deal, but another example of inexperience.

I just hope Hillis and Sceff aren't shipped out too, and Torain is probably toast too, since he was no burner to start with....

Now we'll see if Ayers can play OLB.

i agree, but when you look at the numbers it still doesnt pan out...

moreno
hillis
jordan
d. walker
torrain
buckhalter

teams dont really carry 6 backs, take hillis out (other positions..) thats 5 (more reasonable), and that doesnt include the ton of other guys that i dontknow the names of. ive read reports on here that torrain and jordan are expendable, due to not staying healthy and better short yardage backs, respectively.

Broncos released/failed physical RB J.J. Arrington.
They're eating a $1.8 million signing bonus, and Arrington never even got in a practice for the team. Denver signed Arrington in March hoping he'd be Josh McDaniels' next Kevin Faulk, but Knowshon Moreno shouldn't be any less effective on passing downs. The move leaves Correll Buckhalter, LaMont Jordan, Darius Walker, and injured Ryan Torain behind Broncos likely starter Moreno. Arrington, 26, won't resurface until his knee gets healthy.

ok, 1.8mil is kind of a lot....BUT i am pretty sure they didnt plan on taking a 1st round RB til he sorta fell in there lap

either way, im kind of glad hes gone because he brought nothing that isnt already in a crowded, more talented backfield. as long as buckhalter, hillis and moreno get the carries itll be alright

Actually, a lot of teams carry six backs, and pretty much all at least five. My guess is we carry five with Moreno, Jordan, Buckhalter, and Torrain at HB and Hillis at FB.

OK, that is not good. They should have scouted out the knee better.

Wrong. McDaniels said they were targetting Moreno and Ayers the entire time.

Moreno fell in their lap

Where did you think he was supposed to be drafted? 10? 8? 5?

AHAHAHA. Props for actually being funny and accurate in your criticism.

Well IMO JJ was a little redundant, unless you think Moreno isn't ready to handle pass catching/scat back type stuff.

Not really a huge harm, not a massive foul.

more like, the players they were targeting otherwise were NOT there. atleast that was teh general perception i got from the denver media. mcdaniels would never publicly say that moreno was not his first choice, not good to piss off your first pick by saying you didnt really want him.

Keep in mind who youre talking to. This is a guy who believes in absolute and total submission to the new regime (or perhaps any regime). He is part of the militant arm of Il Duce advocates that feels like he has to get out in front of any possible negative comment about the current regime that might be perceived as a slight. If this was old East Germany, he would be the one guy on the block that likes to report things to the authorities.
