Q back in Denver

Recommended Posts

I already posted this in the Ron Dayne thread, but just so it doesn't get overlooked...


Quentin Griffin re-signed with the Denver Broncos today. Who knows what that means to the Broncos RB situation, if anything, but it's at least worth noting.


Griffin Back, Ernster Waived


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Quentin Griffin is once again a Denver Bronco, while punter/kickoff specialist Paul Ernster is no longer on the roster.


Denver brought back the 5-foot-7 running back on Tuesday evening, signing the third-year veteran while waiving Ernster, who was the Broncos' seventh-round selection in the April draft.


In returning, Griffin has a second chance to make an impression with the Broncos 11 months after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in his knee. He incurred the injury last year against the Cincinnati Bengals and spent the months that followed rehabilitating. He did not return to the practice field until the team's mini-camp in early July,


"It was a roller-coaster ride for me mentally," Griffin said in July. "But I think things happen and you’re going to get up or you’re going to stay down, it depends what type of person you are.


Griffin missed the first two preseason games before playing in the last two. He then gained 89 yards on 24 carries in those final two preseason games, but less than 24 hours after the Broncos closed their warmup slate at Arizona, he was released as the Broncos trimmed their roster to 53.

No problem, that makes things even more crystal clear.  :D








I don't care that it's not clear. Shanny is unhappy with Bell. Mike Anderson seems to be an injury waiting to happen. And maybe/maybe not Dayne can be rehabed. But it does not seem impossible to me that Q could end up getting a SERIOUS look. I'm taking a flyer on him. What am I losing? Patrick Crayton or Arnaz Battle or some backup TE? Screw it. I'm stashing Q.
