Broncos sign 3 as free agency begins

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos are bringing back J.J. Arrington, agreeing to a deal with the tailback who sat out last season with a right knee injury.

Denver also agreed to terms with defensive lineman Justin Bannan and cornerback Nathan Jones on Friday.

Arrington originally signed a four-year contract last March with Denver that was worth about $10 million, but the team waived him two months later when he failed a physical due to the balky knee.

The 27-year-old Arrington figures to be a third-down specialist for the Broncos, a role he played for Arizona in 2008 when the Cardinals advanced to the Super Bowl.

The Broncos also agreed to terms with two veterans who played for them last year: offensive lineman Russ Hochstein and receiver Brandon Lloyd.
