On Thursday the Broncos announced the signing of free agent linebacker Johnny Williams. Williams, a former college free agent from Kentucky, signed with the Jaguars in 2009. After being cut by the Jags, Williams went on to join the Steelers - where he remained on the practice squad up until he was recently released. During his collegiate career, the 6-foot-2, 246-pound linebacker played with current Denver Bronco Wesley Woodyard, while piling up 131 tackles in 49 career games. Mr. Williams will compete for a spot on special teams.
Four former Denver Broncos are interns for coach Mike Shanahan at the Redskins' training camp this summer, among them are former running backs Michael Pittman and Terrell Davis. Davis and Pittman have been working with former Broncos running backs coach Bobby Turner, now a Redskins assistant. Shanahan is giving the former greats a crack at coaching, while giving the young Redskins a chance to learn from some of the best to play the game.
