During the offseason, Denver revamped its linebackers. Now the Broncos are revamping one of their stalwart linebackers’ salaries. Saturday night, Denver signed linebacker D.J. Williams to a five-year, $32 million extension that included $13 million in guaranteed money.
Williams had been scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after this season. Instead, he now will become the highest-paid linebacker in NFL history without a Pro Bowl appearance.
And with his contract out of the way, Williams now can get ready for Darren McFadden and the Oakland Raiders.
