Bringing him to camp certainly can't hurt anything. If he's good enough to beat out some people he's good enough to stay on the team for the season.

Williams was great in 2007 and his metrics were off the charts in 2008. A decent signing, a stop-gap if he has anything left.

If we could get Jamal, our DL would be much improvd before we even get to the draft. He and Fields could platoon at NT with Bannan, McBean and Peterson at DE. We could still resign Holliday, maybe pickup Edwards, and load up in the draft.

Now lets not forget the OL!

If you recall, Jamal Williams had his 2002 season ended by a blindside block from Steve Herndon in that crazy overtime game in San Diego that year. The block dislocated his left ankle. Shanahan apologized for the hit a few days later.

In the aftermath, Williams never said a negative word about the block from Herndon. He said it was part of football. A very classy guy.

I just find it ironic that he is willing to join sides with Denver after all the nasty battles both sides have fought over the years. I would love to have him on our side.

so in reality our entire front 3 is going to be different, I for one didnt think fields was all that bad last year. Peterson on the other hand was crap, and McBean faded after about the halfway point, but he still has potential.

DE Justin Bannan, Marcus Thomas
NT Jamal Williams, Ronald Fields, Chris Baker
DE Jarvis Green, Ryan McBean

I think we should outright cut kenny peterson. This lineup looks solid already and drafting a guy or two to compete would make it even better.

Williams and Green would be major upgrades for the line.

Get over the age-factor, folks. Some of our best additions have been vets. A year or two of high quality play at key positions is better than NO quality play at the position... and it allows us time to draft and develop more talent.

Broncos fans should be crossing their fingers that these moves go down.

I agree, Williams and Green would be great additions. I don't understand why people are complaining about us looking at older players. All of the young guys are RFAs. It's not like they have a choice. Everyone they look at has to be 28 or older, unless they want to give up draft picks, which would cost us young players.

Rotation....you have Dan, Jamal, Bannan at NT. Fields, Green (hopefully), Bannan can rotate at DE and whoever you have.

That way you have Jamal taking what, 20 snaps a game on 1st and 2nd. Bannan can slide from NT to DE or vice versa and you break Dan Williams in so at the end of the season, the light has come on.

Let's wait and see if they can carry through on that part of the bargain, b/c if not, then all the moves for older players are for naught.

NE's old and slow defense has been exposed the last couple of seasons, and while they are transitioning into some younger talent w/ Merriweather and Mayo, their approach has already demonstrated the risk of continually relying on veteran retreads.

For the Broncos though, these moves do seem to be the right ones, much as the FA acquisitions last year were. It's just the other part of the equation that they've haven't yet demonstrated an acumen to accomplish.

NE's defensive issue were not with the DL, it was with the back 7, mostly the LB's.

Yeah... it was Champ Bailey (and injured at that) with those other guys. Bly made a few good plays (won the Browns game with his FF) but overall was bleh.

It really was a wretched secondary. May have had the worst safety tandem I've ever seen.

There was not a decent market for 3-4 linemen last year unless you were prepared to give up what the Raiders gave up for Seymour.

This years isn't much better but we have been talking to the best ones available at least.

Requiem
03-08-2010, 06:20 PM
I don't see how anybody could possibly be up in arms about picking up Williams. If he passes his physical, he will get a contract. It doesn't mean he earns a spot on this team. Williams is an instant rotation guy, if not a starter over Fields if he can play at the level he was prior to his injury last season. 2007 and 2008 were quality years from him.

While a lot of us, myself included, would like to see youth added to these up front positions, we are dealing with free agency and a small market where the kind of guys you are going to get are average players and rotational fill ins. Unless we get a top prospect in this years draft, a healthy Williams has a greater chance for impact and helping us win now than a rookie. That doesn't mean we don't need youth and investments there, because we do, but there is nothing wrong with getting a guy familiar with the scheme and a position coach where he enjoyed great success.

Give it a shot. If he doesn't work out in camp, he is gone. Simple as that.

Anyone arguing against the Pats approach should realize they're by far the most successful team in the salary cap era. I just don't get it.

People should also realize that there are basically zero young UFAs out there this year due to the CBA. The very youngest are pushing 30.

And much like last year the FA acquisitions didn't stop us from adding secondary help in the draft, instead it set a template for it.

Rookies asked to contribute as regular starters from day one flame out at a freakishly high rate and their teams often don't win a whole lot. What McDaniels is doing is adding reasonably priced vets and then drafting their short term replacements right behind them to learn from the previous player's experience and approach to being a professional.

I'm more and more convinced that he's going to grab a couple DLs in the early part of the draft. We're putting all the pieces in place for those young guys to actually get a chance to learn and prepare, not just asking them to step in and produce from day one with no preparation.

We signed Arrington, I love that. His contract was voided how many months later? So we only signed two RB's and you know it. Then there is the fact that Jordan got like 10 carries all season long and was never brought in to be a starter. Hill and Dawkins both were brought into start. So there was a RB battle between Buckhalter and Moreno and both ended up splitting carries during the season.

We also brought in Darrell Reid and extended Marquis Haggan, then drafted Ayers in the first.

If any kind of patterns can be sussed out of McDaniels' first off-season at the helm its that he likes to draft rookie depth to backup his veteran FA acquisitions and that he generally likes the same guys Mike Mayock likes.

I stand by what I said before if we sign two or all of Williams, Edwards, and Green we will look at a skill position in the first round. I still think we will bring Holliday back as well. There wouldn't be any room for Dan Williams in my opinion. The one person I wouldn't be shocked if we took out of the blue would be Jason Pierre-Paul.

I am not sure about Jamal Williams, he has been trouble for the Broncos and everyone else he has played, but he was injured last year and is getting up there in age. He would be fine in a rotation with our other players, but we could not count on him all season. If we can get him cheap enough I guess why not. I would like to see some younger guys in there also, hopefully we can draft someone of value in the later rounds.

Darrell Reid, Ryan McBean, Ronald Fields, and Justin Bannan are the guys on the roster that I think stick from our roster. Baker should get moved to the PS. Should we resign Vonnie Holliday and add two of the following Dwan Edwards, Jamal Williams or Jarvis Green that would leave us with 7 players that we could rotate with the front three. I'm not saying that it's impossible that we wouldn't go with Dan Williams (I think it's a reach at 11) I just don't think it's likely. If you do that's great. I just think QB, S, MLB or CB would be a more likely target. With the news that Bryant isn't even going to run at his pro day I can't see us taking him at 11 either. My sleeper pick for 11 is Jason Pierre-Paul. Drafting him might allow us to pull another shocker and trade Doom.

I think the entire point of going after the Bannan's and Williams's of the FA market is to keep yourself from having to overpick Dan Williams at #11.

If he isn't well positioned there they can look at a Wooton or Cam Thomas in round 2.

But I also think that if we sign two or more of Jamal Williams, Dwan Edwards, and Jarvis Green that we'll have a few guys on the chopping block come next season. Reid is grouped with the OLBs as much as the DEs, so its likely they don't view him as a hit against the DL count. At that point you're asking if we'd want Green/Edwards/a young drafted talent or Holliday, and I think there is a good chance Holliday loses that battle.

I agree pretty much with what Drek says
I think Josh is looking to aggressively fill holes in FA and try to draft his best players in the draft
He said last year he drafts by "player not position"
I dont know if they even like Williams, but I dont see Josh using positions of need as a template for the draft

That's the beauty of signing these FA's. Gives you more flexibility in the draft to take a BPA approach instead of reaching for need.

I think Dan Williams at 11 would be a reach with or without those players brought in. I don't think he is a bad player at all, but if we are going to that is out of the norm for a position inside the top 15 I would rather go Mike Iupati.

I'm curious to see how much money he commands. If I was another team, I'd definitely sign him for a couple million if he was willing to play for that. It's not wholly clear whether the Chargers released him because of money, injury, declining performance, or because he was a party boy.

From what I understand, it's pretty much all of the above, outside of the party boy thing. I know he had the one DUI recently but he seems to be a model citizen otherwise.

He was definitely one of the party boys. Shaun Phillips and Stephen Cooper didn't get cut along with him though so that definitely wasn't the only factor.

I think the entire point of going after the Bannan's and Williams's of the FA market is to keep yourself from having to overpick Dan Williams at #11.

Exactly!

Jamal is simply an awesome player. No doubt in my mind he has some, not a lot, but some left in the tank. He makes the players around him much better. I think you will get one or two decent years out of him.

Well played, sir.

I think this is a great move. Hopefully a short-term deal is forthcoming and we can get some BEEF up front.

Ben Watson is apparently on his way to Denver as well.

Where did you see that?

I think Shaun Phillips' time here is just about up as well. I say one more year if he doesn't mature quickly. Though it will be curious to see if they are willing to let him and Merriman walk in the same year.

Not yet, but don't be surprised if he ends up visiting soon.

I don't expect more than one year of somewhat decent service out of him. I think this year he'll be a solid part of a rotation and next year he'll go all Casey Wiegman on us.

Reading that moron's twitter feed makes me want to go kick him in the balls.

You mean he'll lose weight and weigh in at a whopping 275 pounds, lol. I think there are long snappers who weigh more then Wiegman, hahahaha.Hilarious!

I'm curious to see how much money he commands. If I was another team, I'd definitely sign him for a couple million if he was willing to play for that. It's not wholly clear whether the Chargers released him because of money, injury, declining performance, or because he was a party boy.

I read somewhere that he was due 5 mil this coming season on his current contract, so they cut him becuase they didn't want to pay him that, even though they did still want him at a lower price.

So I'm guessing he wanted to hit the open market, given that we've seen a lot of other top NTs locked up this offseason to make the pickings in the market somewhat slim - if there wasn't some desire on his part to hit the market he probably would have restructured - and who can blame him? Decent NTs are hard to find,which is why the likes of Wilfork and the rest never got as far as making visits.....

For what it's worth Wikipedia has been updated to say Jamal Williams just signed a 3 year contract with us.

Was bummed when I came to the forum after seeing that to find no thread about him being signed.

Hopefully it proves true.

My guess is he doesn't sign w/ the Broncos. If there hasn't been any news yet, and he has indeed left for NO, then we can probably forget about him.

That's not true really. Players don't always take the first deal they get. They like to shop their services around usually.

I wonder if Denver has interest in Ma'ake Kemoeatu. The year he hit Free Agency the first time the Panthers grabbed him in a millisecond. I don't think he lived up to the billing. I don't know about injury history but he played well for Balt. when he was there. They let Kris Jenkins go because they got him.
Atogwe fits in this catagory as well. I lot of people here wanted the Broncos to sign him.
