NFL adds three games to D.J. Williams’ suspension

Broncos' Williams recovers a fumble and celebrates with Woodyard during the second half of their NFL football game against the Dolphins in Miami Reuters

Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams wasn’t expected to play any time soon, and the NFL has now confirmed that Williams will be on the shelf a little longer.

Williams, who was already in the middle of a six-game suspension for allegedly cheating on a drug test by filling the specimen bottle with something other than his urine, has now been suspended three more games for his recent drunk driving conviction.

In August, a Colorado jury found Williams guilty of driving while ability impaired, the second time he has been convicted of that crime in Colorado.

Williams has already missed four games. He will now miss five more games, and the Broncos’ bye week, before being allowed to return to the team on Monday, November 12. He will be eligible to play against the Chargers on Sunday, November 18.

    i don’t think the Broncos will keep him long enough for him to play on Nov. 18th…

    Broncos will wait this one out….BUT , he better keep his NOSE clean for a couple years….and hire a driver.
    I wonder if he “bummed some piss off of Tebow for that 1st test?
    and they said… that piss is just too clean

    Please broncos get rid of him. He useless and we have Wesley Woodward who is just as good as he is at half the price and he never gets into trouble. Trade him to the raiders. He’s perfect for them.

    Ive gotta at least hand it to Goodell on the punishments he hands down. Back in the day, these “problem” guys would just get drafted anyway, but now with these types of consequences teams are going to stay away from these types of players more and more considering they dont ever see the field. Tanard Jackson, Aqib Talib, DJ Williams, Early PacMan Jones, etc etc. These guys are suspended more than they play.

    Time for the Broncos to start looking at free agents.

    The Raiders already have a linebacker that can’t play, and he’s not even suspended. Yet.

    6 games for prob smoking weed and covering it up

    3 games for being on the road hammered and potentially killing innocent people.

    Nice priorities
