Broncos pick up J.J. Arrington

Released last summer by the Broncos before he ever played a snap, Denver picked running back J.J. Arrington back up Thursday evening on a one-year contract.  (Fox 31 in Denver first had the news.)

The third-down back underwent microfracture surgery last May after failing a physical with Denver.  He’s got an uphill battle to relevance with Knowshon Moreno and Correll Buckhalter ahead of him on the Broncos depth chart.

Arrington last played for the Cardinals in the Super Bowl, when he had four catches for 82 yards.
