On Tuesday afternoon, Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams took to Twitter to dish out some smack — on a division rival. Williams started by asking Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal “you went to San Deigo?”
Did Williams really just find out or realize that Royal had signed with San Diego? Regardless, it appears that Williams knew Royal was headed out of town because Royal wrote back, “Yup, you got your wish.”
That wish, presumably, was for Royal to stay in the AFC West so Williams could play against him. Williams noted, ”I get two chances a year… I’m going to smash ya soft ass!”
Royal responded, “Haha, I heard this everyday in practice from D.J. for four years.” To which Williams concluded: ”Couldn’t do it then (in practice), now it’s on!”
Royal signed a three-year, $13.5 deal with the Chargers last month as a free agent. Williams is entering his ninth season as a starting linebacker in Denver and could miss six games this season if his PED suspension is upheld.
How about it, Bronco fans? Would D.J. Williams smashing Eddie Royal be on your list of things you want to see this season?
