Denver started the week with a quarterback controversy and is ending it with a new quarterback.
Free-agent quarterback Chris Simms has reached agreement with the Broncos on a two-year contract. He will be insurance for starting quarterback Jay Cutler, whose name emerged last week in trade talks.
Simms hasn’t signed yet but soon will, and he will have gone from Tampa Bay to Tennessee to Denver.
Finally, Denver signed free-agent running back J.J. Arrington to a four-year contract. The deal was signed last week, but the league rejected the contract’s language, and it was redone Wednesday. Arrington is a Bronco.
