Pats sign D.J. Williams


The Patriots played without tight end Michael Hoomanawanui on Sunday night because of a knee injury against the Broncos and they made a move on Monday to assure that they wouldn’t have to play with just two tight ends this week if Hoomanawanui remains out.

The NFL’s daily transaction report brings word that the Patriots have signed tight end D.J. Williams. Williams played seven games for the Jaguars this year, starting once, after Jacksonville claimed him off of waivers from the Packers but was released earlier this month. He had no catches in those games and caught nine passes with the Packers during the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

The Patriots also released a couple of players on Tuesday. Cornerback Justin Green was dropped a couple of days after making his NFL debut. Green, who played eight snaps against Denver, can return to the Patriots practice squad.

Defensive tackle Marcus Fortson was also let go. Fortson had three tackles in three games as a reserve on the defensive line.

    I remember when this team was loaded with Tight Ends…remember how all those Ampats and Joetoronto wanna-bes would gush last year about NE holding onto Jake Ballard just in case Gronk wasn’t healthy this year…smh.

    Keep hating while the Patriots sit at 8-3… one of those wins being a beatdown on your precious Steelers. I’d probably be bitter too…

    I remember when the Steelers were a good team. Then Mike Tomlin came along and ruined Bill Cowher’s team. Now they’re just a bunch of pathetic losers. Sad.

    Many people in this world don’t know what greatness is. If you want to experience what greatness is, look at the Vikings organization. The Vikings organization is filled with classy players who give 100% every game and dominate in the NFL every single game, The impending Vikings dynasty will hit the NFL by surprise, but no one will be suprised after seeing us win Super Bowl after Super Bowl. The whole league envys us and I can see why, we are the prototypical NFL franchise, we are the Lambourghini of cars, the iPhones of cellular devices, the greatness is reflecting off us every second of the day and all I see is jealousy? I understand the jealousy and give full condolences too all the haters, haters despise greatness. Martin Luther King is a great example of a comparison to the Vikings, people despised and he changed the world just like the Vikings will.

  12. patshatersarelosers says: Nov 26, 2013 8:34 PM

    Hahahahahahaha…time to put the crackpipe down.

  13. jlpats says: Nov 26, 2013 8:37 PM

    But hey a beat down by the pats on the steelers seems like a yearly event!!!!

    He is a pretty good player, especially if you consider he was never thrown to. Hard to prove anything in that situation.

    DJ is a cool dude, we just had way too many tight ends on our roster with Finley and Company – Dj was the odd man out – I hope he does alright with Brady throwing to him.

    I guess God just wanted the patriots to pound 55 points on the steelers, an all time record for a steelers defeat. The lord works in mysterious ways, huh?

    OK :
    So tell me, why would a Steelers fan care who the Pats sign. I doubt your team will play New England agagain. Oh! BTW how is your team doing so far? Its all about “what have you done for me lately” you blind moronic “fan guy”
