Bears Sign Former Bronco Linebacker D.J. Williams

Make D.J. Williams the latest former Denver Bronco to wear a different shade of orange and blue. Looking for a replacement for Brian Urlacher, the Chicago Bears have signed Williams to a one-year deal.

In comparison to Urlacher, Williams brings youth (he’s four years younger), 627 tackles, 20.5 sacks, and 13 career forced fumbles. After being suspended for nine games last season, Wiliams had just 14 tackles in seven games.

Williams will join Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall as former Broncos who have transplanted to Chicago.

If Williams hits certain playing time and workout incentives, he could earn up to $1.75 million. Maybe his trips to Miami and Las Vegas will decrease.
