I read the article, and it is exactly what I expected. He has an explaination for everything, but how many times in that article did he apologise to the fans for his actions? Not once. Typical.

Here is a long but good Q&A with DJ.

I know alot of people don't like DJ because of off the field issues, but the guy really is a team player. I've never heard him complain about his role, lack of defensive continuity, or contracts.

It will be interesting to see what role he plays when he comes back. I think and hope he will really solidify the LBs.


Interesting read, thanks.

This part got me thinking:

Quote:
“My coach tells me, ‘Hey, we’re changing your position; you’ve got to learn a new position over the weekend and you’re basically going to compete against somebody who’s been doing it for two, three months. And you’re fighting for a job,’” Williams said.


Assuming that coming into this offseason DJ was the starting WLB, and the coach tells him he is changing positions to compete with a player who has previously played it, could moving DJ to MLB have been the plan all along? I wonder if "changing position" means an altered role in certain packages rather than a move on the depth chart. Can anyone answer this - did Joe Mays contract extension come after it was known DJ would be suspended?

With that said, I hope DJ can dust himself off and continue his career here playing at a high level without hurting the team.

To answer my own question, Rotoworld reports DJ was suspended six games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs on March 9th. Joe Mays was re-signed on March 18th after making visits to the Colts and Saints. Denver also had Jameel McClain in for a visit and it was reported Denver wasn't ready to give Nate Irving the starting MLB job.

Could DJ have been the projected MLB pre-suspension? Think

Because he should cae what fans think?

I'll bet you anything he has apologized to the people that matter - coaches and players.

It seems as though you missed the answer in the beginning of the article when he says:

DJ Williams wrote:
I’m not as open to fans as most people. But at the end of the day, it starts out with your coaching staff and your teammates. Fans can be makeshift – I’m not saying our fans are, but they can be. It’s hard to open up to people you really don’t know. That’s not me. That’s not my personality.


And if he was to apologize to the fans, would that even change your mind about him?

Here is what I heard.

I'm misunderstood. I'm being treated unfairly.

Here's what I didn't hear.

I'm in this situation because I did things that were wrong. I shouldn't have done them and my conduct wax wrong. It's my own fault and I'm taking responsibility for my actions.
