As expected, the Denver Broncos are planning to part ways with veteran linebacker D.J. Williams this spring. Per the Denver Post: “When the NFL season officially opens for business March 12, the Broncos are expected to place Williams on the trading block. It won’t be easy trading a player who is scheduled to make $6 million in 2013, is on the wrong side of age 30 and is coming off a double suspension that crippled his production in 2012,” wrote Mike Klis. [...] “If no team is willing to give the Broncos a draft pick in return, they are expected to release Williams before April 15, when players report to Dove Valley headquarters for team conditioning.” Williams (30) was drafted by the Broncos in the first round (17th overall) in 2004. Since then, he has recorded 824 tackles, 20.5 sacks, and forced 10 fumbles. With the emergence of Von Miller (23) and Wesley Woodyard (26), Williams has become expendable at outside linebacker, especially when his off-the-field troubles are added into the equation. Moving forward, middle linebacker is the LB position up for grabs, with third-year, 240-pounder Nate Irving appearing to have the inside track to win the gig this summer.

Williams is set to make $6 million in the 2013 season, a number too big for a Broncos team that played most of the season without Williams who missed nine games in 2012 serving two seperate suspensions. Klis writes:

Demaryius Thomas wasn’t supposed to be this good. Yeah, Peyton Manning was coming in, but he was supposed to litter Eric Decker with balls, which… he well, did. However, it was Thomas who had the All-Pro caliber season, even though his...
