Broncos deal with J.J. Arrington back on

The Denver Post is reporting that the on-again, off-again deal between the Denver Broncos and RB J.J. Arrington is on again as the two agreed to a 4-year / $10 million contract this afternoon.

As Mike Klis reports, the Broncos are collecting running backs --

By signing three tailbacks, McDaniels is bringing another piece of the New England offensive formula to Denver. The Pats often played three tailbacks, and rarely use a 25-carry workhorse during a game. Buckhalter likely remain as the Broncos' starting tailback with the more powerful Jordan getting a few series and short-yardage carries. Arrington will compete for the third-down, pass-receiving role.

The signings all but assure current Bronco free-agent tailbacks Michael Pittman and Tatum Bell won't return. It also means the Broncos' holdover tailback stable of Selvin Young, Ryan Torain and Peyton Hillis will have to compete for a roster spot during training camp.

While I agree that Pittman and Young are history, and that Torain is going to have to fight hard to keep his job, I think Josh McDaniels is going to find a spot on this offense for Peyton Hillis.  That is, unless Hillis' injury doesn't heal over the off-season.

The Broncos also re-signed one of their own, agreeing to terms with DT Kenny Peterson.  Peterson played H.S. football with McDaniels and his younger brother in Canton, OH.

The Broncos now have 11 new bodies.  We'll talk all about what it means tonight on MHR Radio - 8PM est / 6PM mst,
