ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos added depth in the trenches Saturday as they signed defensive lineman DeShawn Williams.
Williams spent time with the Broncos during the 2018 and 2019 offseasons and was on the team’s practice squad briefly early in the 2018 season. He most recently competed with the team during the Broncos’ 2019 training camp.
The 6-foot-1, 291-pound player has appeared in four career games, which all came in 2016 while he was with the Bengals.
Williams joins a defensive line that includes Jurrell Casey, Mike Purcell, Shelby Harris, Dre’Mont Jones, DeMarcus Walker, Christian Covington and McTelvin Agim. The Broncos last week waived/non-football illness defensive lineman Jonathan Harris.
Denver is off from practice on Saturday but will return to the field Sunday.
