Broncos Bring Back Arrington

Posted Mar 5, 2010

J.J. Arrington signed with the Broncos as a free agent a year ago today, but an injury kept him from playing in 2009. Now the team has signed the running back again, and he hopes he can add to his 58 regular season games played.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Friday might have felt a little familiar to running back J.J. Arrington.

A year ago today, Arrington signed with the Broncos as a free agent. He was waived in May, however, due to injury, and spent the 2009 campaign out of football. Now the Broncos have re-signed the fifth-year running back who has 58 career regular-season games played.

Arrington spent his first four NFL seasons with Arizona, which selected him in the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft from the University of California. Out of his 58 regular-season games, he has started eight times and has totaled 183 rushes for 654 yards and three touchdowns along with 91 receptions for 693 yards and two scores. Arrington also owns 114 career kickoff returns for 2,694 yards and two touchdowns.

In 2008, Arrington saw time in 11 regular-season games with three starts and all played in all four postseason contests for the Cardinals, who won the NFC West title and advanced to Super Bowl XLIII. He rushed for 187 yards on 31 carries -- good for an average of six yards per carry -- with one touchdown and tied a career high with 29 receptions for 255 yards with one score during the regular season. He also returned 36 kickoffs for 923 yards with a 93-yard touchdown return.

During his rookie campaign with Arizona in 2005, Arrington rushed for a career-high 370 yards on 112 carries with two touchdowns and had 25 receptions for 139 yards. He returned 67 kickoffs for 1,520 yards with a 99-yard touchdown return for the Cardinals in 2006.
