Broncos release D.J. Williams, Caleb Hanie

In a move that’s been coming for weeks if not months, the Broncos finally released linebacker D.J. Williams, according to multiple reports.

With a $6 million salary, Williams was expendable from an economic standpoint and a football standpoint, with the emergence of Wesley Woodyard. While those two factors are plenty, multiple suspensions last year made him more trouble than he was worth for the Broncos.

“We appreciate the contributions made by D.J. Williams during his time with the Broncos,” Broncos executive John Elway said in a statement released by the team. “He was a solid player with this team for a number of years, showing a lot of versatility at linebacker. Our organization wishes D.J. all the best going forward.”

The Broncos also released quarterback Caleb Hanie, after he spent the year as their inactive third quarterback.

    Wouldn’t mind this D.J Williams guy joining the bucs if he can cut out the extra baggage. I believe he is still serviceable with this acquisition we now move Foster back to weak side plus we don’t even know if Q.Black will ever play again!!

    Good on Bucs without baggage? Half the team spends the offseason in the courtroom.

    Problem with DJ is the potential to get suspended for another 4 plus games.

    Sad thing is, he’s a lot better than Rolando McClain.

    Talented guy who cannot stay out of trouble. It’s always something. Count on him being suspended at least four games a year.

    Mike Brown has him on speed-dial.

    Caleb Haine is worthless. Good riddance on behalf of the NFL, from a bears fan.
