Broncos: D.J. Williams won’t start, no longer team captain

The Denver Broncos have released a statement expressing their displeasure at linebacker D.J. Williams’ Friday DUI arrest, saying he won’t be in the starting lineup on Sunday, is no longer a team captain, and has been fined as much as the CBA allows.

“The Denver Broncos are extremely disappointed in D.J. Williams’ careless and irresponsible actions on Friday morning,” the statement says. “This type of behavior is taken very seriously by the organization.

“The Broncos have levied the heaviest fines possible to him for conduct detrimental to the club under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement due to the disruption and resulting impact on the team. He will not start in Sunday’s game against the Chiefs and has been stripped of his captaincy for the season.

“Any further possible discipline stemming from this incident will be determined by the league’s policies and the legal system.”

Williams, who also was arrested for DUI five years ago, is also likely to be suspended by the NFL.

    He’ll be taking his talents to south beach very soon.

    Where is the outcry? Where are the calls for suspension? One or two blog posts for his second offense? Braylon Edwards was absolutely crucified when he got his, 10 posts a day on here, him getting killed on ESPN, but a Bronco does it and there is no hoopla. Why because Braylon is a NY Jet? What’s the difference? DUI is a DUI right?

    I am impressed as well. When does he go to jail?

    He went to jail. Now he will be traded to a contender. Way to go D.J.

    As further punishment, DJ will still play for the Broncos!

    Hey Godell, where are you at??

    Does any of this really matter? The team is in shambles, the seasons obviously lost. Say bye Joshy, another BB tree bust.

    Don’t forget that Lil’ Napoleon McDaniels benched Brandon Marshall and Tony Scheffler for the entire game in Week 17 last season, and neither of them were arrested for anything.

    If he allows Williams to play, I want to see him called out here for his hypocrisy.
