Broncos announce Williams punishment

Stemming from LB D.J. Williams’ arrest Friday morning on a DUI charge, the Broncos announced this afternoon that they have fined him, stripped him of his captaincy and taken away his starting position for Sunday’s game.

Said the team in a statement:

“The Denver Broncos are extremely disappointed in D.J. Williams’ careless and irresponsible actions on Friday morning. This type of behavior is taken very seriously by the organization.

“The Broncos have levied the heaviest fines possible to him for conduct detrimental to the club under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement due to the disruption and resulting impact on the team. He will not start in Sunday’s game against the Chiefs and has been stripped of his captaincy for the season.

“Any further possible discipline stemming from this incident will be determined by the league's policies and the legal system.”
Since Williams makes $3.67 million in base salary, according to Macs Football Blog , and the CBA's maximum is one game check for conduct detrimental to the team, the fine will be in the neighborhood of $215,000.

UPDATE (4:12 p.m.):
The Denver Post reports the actual fine will be close to $15,000 - not $215,000. According to Lindsay Jones, his fines are due to Williams missing meetings and practice and for conduct detrimental to the team. The reason for the confusion was due to the phrase "the heaviest fines possible to him for conduct detrimental to the club," which led us to believe it was one game check, which is outlined in the CBA as the maximum a team can fine a player.

Stupid question, if they are saying Williams will not be starting tomorrow, does that mean that he will not play at all or simply losing his "Starting" status?

Orton is a good QB who has gotten better every year he's played. I think he's a damn good player. I just think McDaniels is a lousy coach. I don't mind him running off problem players, but damn it! get some good players in exchange, not washed up non starters. That's the problem with McDaniels. He isn't a talent evaluater. I'm sick of coaches who have to have control over the draft and selecting players. Coaches need to coach and let the organization get the players. There are very, very few coaches who can do both and McDaniels isn't one of them.
That's pretty obvious by the squad he trots out on the field.

Mcdaniels was hired to blow up Denver's roster and save them from the monotony and eventual mutiny, that defined the Mike Shannhan era after the Duke retired.  Mr. Bowlen finally realized that without John Elway, Shannhan was just an average Joe and 1 playoff win every 10 years wasn't going to cut it.

All these morons out there don't seem to understand, that when you take over a team, it takes more then a year and a half, to cleanse your roster of the players brought in by the previous regime and then reconstruct the roster to fit your new philosophy. 

Mcdaniels was signed to a 4 year contract by Mr. Bowlen and he will not get fired ths season, or next, even if the Broncos lose the rest of their games. You can continue to cry about McD being fired after every loss, but do understand that you appear somewhat clownish and foolish, because it isn't happening.

McD called plays in New England for an offense that scored the most points in a single season, in the history of the NFL.
He had Denver off to a 6-0 start last year and he will get things turned around again once he gets all his pieces in , and Ratfaces' pieces out.

As for Orton being a benchwarmer? That sort of talk is becoming just plain stupid now and shows the lack of football knowledge of some of you dudes and even a few chicks out there. Anyone, who is even remotely intelligibl
e about NFL football, knows that Orton has arrived and has a room waiting for him in Hawaii at the end of the season.
