Broncos continue adding beef, sign Williams

The Denver Broncos ranked 26th against the run in 2009, giving up an average of 128.7 yards per game.

Apparently, the just wasn’t good enough.

The organization has been busy as of late addressing the defensive side of the football, and the spending continued Tuesday afternoon with the team signing free agent nose tackle Jamal Williams.

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, Williams and the Broncos reached an agreement on a three-year deal worth $16 million. The contract includes $7 million in guaranteed money and has a maximum value of $22 million.

In addition to Williams, the Broncos have recently opened up their checkbooks to acquire
Justin Bannan and Jarvis Green.

Williams—a 12-year veteran out of Oklahoma State—was released by the San Diego Chargers last Thursday. He was due to earn a roster bonus of $1 million with a 2010 base salary of $5 million.

The Pro Bowl nose tackle appeared in just one game in 2009—the season opener—where he suffered a triceps injury that forced him to miss the rest of the season.
