One of the bigger victims of the constant change at DC, playing a different position every year it seemed.

But, also, a victim of his own off-field idiocy.

Champ is now the only Bronco left from before 2006. From one team that was on the cusp of a Super Bowl, to another one 7 years later with an entirely different cast.

I have fond memories of D.J. Williams' 2004 rookie season. Maybe in a parallel universe, he can finally realize his All-Pro potential.

Yes, yes you can. The universe tends to balance itself out.

On a side note, our longest tenured Bronco (I believe) is gone. DJ was a solid player, but never lived up to the true potential he had. I wish him the best.

Spotrac is saying that his dead money is only 250,000 and Hanie's 125,000.

So we either are saving 5 million to 6 million or so with these moves.

Edit: They now have the updated numbers. So we save about 5 million from each. Dishing Dumervil and Mays will get us to 23 million in space. How about we cut Caldwell and save another 825,000 and plus another few garbage can turd suckers as well.

I want to go nuts in FA.

Kinda, yes Mays sucks but it was only a 2 year deal. It's not like it screwed us for years. Had we not signed him last year I don't think anything would have been different. Brooking would still have played MLB

I am happy that Joe got some money. He is a real nice guy and has a family. But we can cut him now and he can get out of the NFL and go back to NDSU and become a Defensive Assistant or LB coach. GO JOE

Cheers, Joe. I have a soft place in my heart for anyone that can bonecrush a chief so bad that it looks like he'd been up drinking all night long and never quit!

Plus I got family from ND.

Thinking of his earlier days makes me feel old. Or maybe its just sadness thinking about what could have been.

Remembering the early days, reminds me of how good Al Wilson was, when he could even make DJ Williams look good.

Socal will jump ship like Atlas did when Shanny was shown the door.


This is the time everyone of you pot heads in Colorado should go out and bend a fatty in celebration. Next to winning the lottery, this is as good as it gets. DJ Williams is gone, rejoice!
