Bronco's Lock Up LB Williams For 5 Years

DENVER(AP) - The Denver Broncos signed linebacker D.J. Williams to a five year contract extension Sunday.

The NFL Netowrk and Rocky Mountain News are reporting that the contract is worth $32 million, including $13 in guaranteed money.

Williams has played all three linebacker positions since being drafted by the Broncos in 2004. He lined up at middle linebacker last season for the first time in his career and was credited with 170 tackles, the most by a Broncos player in five seasons.

The 6'1", 240 pound Williams also had a sack, three forced fumbles and an interception.
