Hat tip to MGM for this FanPost. This is great news for the Broncos. They needed to reward Williams for not only being a great player on the field, but for all the moving around they put him through. Williams, who has been unhappy with all the position changes, kept most of his disdain under wraps and today the Broncos have seemingly rewarded him. Congratulations to Williams, the Broncos, and the fans, who will get to see D.J. become one of the best Linebackers in the NFL! -- TSG
Hey all, just wanted to share the word that D.J. has apparently signed an extension with the Broncos for 5 years. I think this is a great way to spend our cap space- lock up one of our premium defenders before he hits free agency this winter and ensure that he doesn't drive up his price even more with his sure-to-be stellar upcoming season.
Adam Schefter reports on NFL.com -
"During the offseason, Denver revamped its linebackers. Now the Broncos are revamping one of their stalwart linebackers’ salaries. Saturday night, Denver signed linebacker D.J. Williams to a five-year, $32 million extension that included $13 million in guaranteed money.
Williams had been scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after this season. Instead, he now will become the highest-paid linebacker in NFL history without a Pro Bowl appearance."
Now let's bring on the Raiders!!
