J.J. Arrington might not be joining the Denver Broncos after all.
Arrington, a free-agent RB who has spent his entire four-year NFL career with the Arizona Cardinals, agreed to a four-year deal with the Broncos on Friday. But the Denver Post reported that there were questions about details of the contract:
- The Broncos and Arrington had reached an agreement in principle Friday on a four-year contract, according to the player’s agent, J.R. Rickert. But in reading through the contract language, some issues arose that threaten to kill the deal.
- “J.J’s back in Arizona,” said Rickert, who did complete a four-year contract with the Broncos on another free-agent running back, Correll Buckhalter. “The deal’s not dead yet.”
Arrington started three games for the Cardinals during the regular season and saw action in 15 of 20 games, including all four playoff contests. He ran for nearly 200 yards in 2008 including the postseason, and he was particularly effective catching passes out of the backfield with 36 receptions.
