The scales are tipping in the AFC West. Literally.
348-lb. defensive lineman Jamal Williams, who spent the past decade terrorizing the Denver Broncos as the center of the San Diego Chargers‘ 3-4 defensive front, has reversed roles. After a day of lengthy negotiations, the Broncos and Williams came to terms on a three-year deal that will keep the 33-year-old in Denver through 2012.
The move reunites Williams with Broncos line coach Wayne Nunnely, who spent most of Williams’ career in the same capacity in San Diego before joining Josh McDaniels‘ staff last season.
This move is huge — pun intended. The Broncos can’t rely on Williams for 16 games (let alone 48), but with Ronald Fields providing depth and Bannan able to step in at NT in a pinch, Denver did a lot to improve and solidify its defensive front this week. Job well done, McDaniels and company.
