Around the web: Fargas excited to be a Bronco

Recently acquired free agent running back Justin Fargas is excited to get another shot in the NFL with the Bronco. "The Broncos have always been a team I've respected, and now that I'm apart of the team it feels good," said Fargas. "I've always had admiration for this organization, the way they conduct themselves, the way they treat their players, [they are] first class - I'm glad to be a part of it." Talking that way about his former rival gives an impression that perhaps Fargas wasn't treated very well in Oakland, staying professional, Fargas didn't go there, "There's no animosity [towards the Raiders], but obviously I wanna go beat 'em."

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.
