D.J. Williams tweets picture of Broncos playbook

Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams has added another bit of drama to his plate.

Williams is fighting a six-game suspension from the NFL for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing drugs and he’s set for a second trial on DUI charges after the first one ended in a mistrial. Now he’s created a little firestorm with his choice of what picture to send out to his Twitter followers.

Williams tweeted out a photo of a page, brought to our attention by, from the Broncos playbook, which, in true 21st century fashion, comes on an iPad. The reason Williams gave for tweeting it out was to show his followers that he’s learning a new position, presumably strong side linebacker. You can see the photo at right, but it has since been deleted along with the offending tweet although Williams’ fairly risqué avatar photo remains for all the world to see.

There’s nothing too scandalous about what Williams revealed. The page contains pre-snap defensive shifts, something readily available to any team that knows how to watch film and knowing how the Broncos will shift doesn’t necessarily tell you anything about what they’ll do once the play begins. In the super-secretive NFL, though, all information about the playbook is meant to be kept under lock and key.

    Such a great linebacker. Can do it all across the board. Just needs to find common sense. Kills me as a Broncos fan. He is a stud on the field, and a dud off.

    Bellicheck is now following DJ Williams on twitter. But seriously I would be pissed if I was a Broncos fan or his teammate.

    It doesn’t matter whether those pages from the playbook would have given opponents a competitive advantage. You just don’t put pages from your playbook out there for the world to see.

    Nothing good has come from the union of football players and Twitter.

    It’s like Dauber leaving his playbook at Alamo Burger on Coach

    See Chris Cooley? THAT’s how you show off your playbook, without a d*ck in the picture.

    As I’ve said before….they should make a rule that in order to have a Twitter account, you must have an I.Q. higher than that of a tree stump.

    Does anyone else get tired of the ignorant, incoherent ramblings of degenerate morons?

    Stud on the field??? Another linebacker from the U that just keeps on “getting some.” Wish he would put more effort into chasing the ball down than all the off- the-field issues.

    There’s a good reason for doing it… the same as why some people keep a cell phone to their ear even though there’s no one on. It’s an attempt to look important.

    DJ isn’t THAT great, he only leads the team in tackles every season because we don’t have anyone else. I expected him to step up and take over the team after Al Wilson left – looks like Von Miller will assume that role.
