Teammates of Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams are coming to his defense after the team's top tackler was blasted on social media for tweeting a photo of his playbook last week.
Williams blew past reporters without stopping to answer questions after the start of a three-day mandatory minicamp Tuesday. But several of his teammates said that while Williams might have breached NFL protocol, he didn't give away secrets that would hurt the team.
Cornerback Tracy Porter said opponents would have to have ''psychic powers'' to capitalize on the photo of six defensive alignments that Williams tweeted Friday.
Coach John Fox said the issue was addressed internally. He said his players do a good job of engaging with the public but there will be missteps along the way.

For the past decade or so, television stations stopped recruiting journalists, and instead starting recruiting bikini models and cheerleaders to fill their sports sideline reporter slots. This fact is certainly not news, but it is interesting how one specific NFL cheerleading squad, the Denver Broncos, has produced three of these “journalists” all by themselves.
Acquitted of sexual assault in March, former Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox is being sued by the woman who accused him of the crime. Current Denver receiver Demaryius Thomas is also listed in the civil suit seeking unspecified damages. Cox did not testify at his trial. Because the burden of proof isn't as weighty in civil lawsuits, the 2010 incident will be brought back to...
