View Full Version : Peter King LOVES the Jamal Williams Signing!

Denver had a more important signing during the week. Nose tackle Jamal Williams, the long-time Charger, signed as part of a defensive line makeover (Denver added Justin Bannan and Jarvis Green,too), and this will be one of the most interesting signings in free agency this year. Williams played at an all-decade level for the Chargers (on my all-decade team, at least) before missing 15 games last year with a torn triceps. Had the Chargers not had so many free agents to sign, they probably would have made Williams more of a focus instead of allowing him to walk when his contract expired.

When he arrived in Denver for a visit last week, he weighed 334 (down about a dozen pounds from his playing weight, impressive for an offseason visit), and the Denver coaches who watched video of him in his last two years saw no sign of decline; neither did independent observers like Aaron Schatz of Footballoutsiders.com. If Williams is right, he'll be the perfect nose to draw double-teams, something Denver didn't have in 2009.

But he has Hillis and Larsen mixed up. Dammit Peter! Get your facts straight!!!

You think the McNabb market is soft? Look at what Brady Quinn yielded. Denver gave Cleveland versatile backup runner Peyton Hillis (who might be the best player in this trade), a sixth-round pick this year and a conditional pick in the 2012 draft that I'm told won't be better than a fourth-round pick. This for the 22nd pick in 2007, who had 12 starts to prove he belonged.

Unfortunately for Quinn the Cleveland regime changed, and Eric Mangini wasn't a big fan -- not that Quinn gave him much reason to be. In Denver, Quinn enters camp as the clear backup to restricted free-agent Kyle Orton (Josh McDaniels called Orton to tell him he was the starter on Sunday). But being under the tutelage of McDaniels should help Quinn, who needs to become less frenetic in his drops and picking out the open receiver.

Hillis became a two-way sensation under Mike Shanahan in 2008, playing running back and linebacker for the Broncos and going on a strong five-game run in the backfield before tearing his hamstring late in the season; I guarantee he'll be a favorite of Mangini's for his versatility, the way Mangini loves players like Josh Cribbs and Blake Costanzo.

Last point: It's likely that Chris Simms will be the odd man out in Denver, with Orton, Quinn and 2009 rookie Tom Brandstater likely to be 1-2-3 on the depth chart at quarterback.

More proof that Peter King doesn't know his ass from a banjo? Did we really need that?

Yeah, the Williams signing is good. But everyone already knows that.

Screwing up Larsen and Hillis just makes him look foolish. Again.

Peter King has to come up for air every once in awhile from blowing Tom Terrific. He may have waited too long between repiratory intervals, and mixed up Hillis and Larsen due to hypoxia / hypercapnia. Don't worry though... he'll be on his game when he returns to his position of influence regarding the HOF committee.

No, I'd say it's really more proof that outside of Denver nobody really knows or cares much about Peyton Hillis. Overblown story in Denver, non-story everywhere else.

The weekend news leaves us with one big personnel story (except for the fate of Brandon Marshall) prior to the draft: Why are teams not fighting to get Donovan McNabb or Kevin Kolb from the Eagles?


Dear Peter King,

You can just say "There are 2 personnel stories still left - Brandon Marshall and McNabb/Kolb" You sound like someone who is trying to be smarter than he really is rather than someone comfortable enough with himself. I know why I don't read mmqb anymore.

He did -

Hillis prove more than capable under Mike Shanahan in 2008, playing running back and fullback for the Broncos and going on a strong five-game run in the backfield before tearing his hamstring late in the season.

Still stupid. Hillis prove? Me run fast.

Should've included a bit about how Hillis basically sacrificed himself to salvage what would have been another in a long line of pick sixes against the Chiefs.

San Diego didn't let Jamal Williams' contract expire. They released him from his contract which would have run through 2011. Great theory though, Peter!

Yeah, yeah... King is yada-yada.
This is the most interesting tidbit from this piece. 334? Sounds like he's in good shape. Would love to see a highly-motivated JW anchor this line. He's had a year off from the wear-and-tear, so... that's encouraging.
