Alfred “Big Al” Williams is known these days for his work in the radio business in the Mile High City, but he was once a dominant defensive lineman.

“Big Al” played his college football in Boulder at the University of Colorado, and has been a local favorite for a long time.

He was a first-round pick in the 1991 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals after he helped the Buffaloes win a National Championship in 1990.

Williams came to the Broncos in 1996. He made an immediate impact, earning All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors after he racked up 13 sacks in that first season with his new team.

He went on to play a key role in the Broncos’ first two Super Bowl titles in team history, retiring after the 1999 season. In his four seasons with the Broncos, Williams racked up 28.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and 131 total tackles.
