On the same day the Broncos bid (bade?) farewell to quarterback Tom Brandstater, the team made two other transactions.
Gone is offensive lineman Maurice Williams. Fullback Kyle Eckel joined the team.
Williams arrived less than a month ago. He spent nine seasons with the Jaguars, starting all 16 games in 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006.
Eckel won a Super Bowl ring with the Saints in 2009, the highlight to a four-year career that has included stops in Miami, New England, and Philly. In 2007, he appeared in 12 regular-season games and two postseason games for the Patriots, who finished 18-1, losing to the Giants in Super Bowl XLII.
