Bostic should be expected to start

As the Chicago Bears prepare to begin training camp, there have been rumblings about second-year linebacker Jon Bostic competing for a starting spot. The expectation shouldn’t be for him to be in competition for the job, it should be for him to win it. After drafting Bostic, Bears general manager Phil Emery said “I felt it was very important that if we were going to take a linebacker...

Chicago Bears: Why D.J Williams should be nervous

While Jon Bostic is in the mix for both the strong side and middle linebacker position, the battle for MLB between D.J. Williams (who will be 32 when the season starts) and second-year man Bostic looks to be more intense than previously thought. Bostic’s explosiveness and speed could place him as the No.1 MLB heading into 2014. Williams was signed two days after Brian Urlacher...

The worst draft pick spent on a TE in Packers history

Nothing is worse than watching a talented draft pick flop, but it happens. Usually a “flop” is a player who is drafted early in the draft and doesn’t live up to his expectations but really, where they are taken in the draft is irrelevant as the draft is structured by need first and talent second. The Green Bay Packers worst draft pick spent on a tight end came in the fifth...

D.J. Williams Hoping to Latch On With Patriots After Stints With Packers, Jaguars Did Not Work Out

FOXBORO, Mass. – D.J. Williams could never quite separate himself in a crowded tight end group in Green Bay. The Packers already had Jermichael Finley and Andrew Quarless, two other “flex” tight ends, when Williams was taken in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL draft. He could never pass Tom Crabtree either, who started five games for the Buccaneers this season after signing...

FOXBORO, Mass. — It’s an uphill climb for a veteran player to try to come to New England and learn the Patriots’ entire playbook during training camp. D.J. Williams is trying to accomplish such a feat more than midway through the season. Williams signed on Wednesday and was active his first Sunday with the team. That’s an accomplishment in itself. Of course, it helps that...
