D.J. Williams

In the midst of the Peyton Manning media circus at Dove Valley, a new shoe has dropped: two three Denver Broncos players are in serious trouble.

Linebacker D.J. Williams and defensive end Ryan McBean have each received six-game suspensions from the NFL for violating its Substance Abuse Policy, Vic Lombardi of CBS4 reports. Both plan on appealing their suspensions with federal lawsuits.

Tight end Virgil Green has also received a four-game suspension.

Lombardi expands: “The more I learn about this, I think McBean and DJ have a good reason to file a lawsuit.” Lombardi broke the Green news moments later.

Williams has two years left on his six-year deal he signed in 2008. McBean will be a restricted free agent in 2012. Green was a 7th round draft pick of the Broncos in 2011.

We’ll have more as it comes.

    I think Williams is done in Denver.

    They should have traded him when they could have.

    Good riddance DJ. Take your bad attitude, rude tweets, and DUIs elsewhere.

    Yep, I think that may have punched his ticket out of town.

    Wonder if this has anything to do with the Broncos having to find a new strength and conditioning coach – could he have accidentally given them the wrong “protein” shake or is it something less serious like a bit of dope?

    Oooh according to IAOFM Williams isn’t human and Green took a medication that he hadn’t received approval for.

    I heard the breaking news from Vic (man someone needs to sign him and gary. I miss those guys) when he was talking with Al and D-Mac about the Manning stuff.

    Two observations from me:
    #1. Virgil Green was diagnosed and prescribed ADHD medication. He took his prescribed medication BEFORE the NFL gave the green light. Personally, I think it’s BS that he’s suspended for that, as he was diagnosed and prescribed the meds. He can appeal, but he wont win because the NFL has a huge stick up its ass.

    #2. DJ and McBean should/will win their lawsuit. The person who took their samples was fired right afterwards when they suspected tampering. Later, the samples that he was said to have tampered with, and thus fired over, came back positive and non-human. It doesn’t get much easier than this for a judge to rule in favor of DJ and McBean. Whether DJ gets traded/cut has yet to be seen. I think he’s a great player, who is playing his natural position again. He isn’t a mike linebacker, he’s a weakside linebacker, and his pro-bowl level of play last year proved that. His DUIs might get him suspended and run out of town, but one thing is for certain, he’s a tremendous talent, and this team is in need of as many talented players as it can get.
