Posted May 6, 2010

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Thursday signed free-agent offensive lineman Maurice Williams, it was announced. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Denver also on Thursday announced the release of safety Marcellus Bowman and guard Michael Shumard, whom the club signed as college free agents following the 2010 NFL Draft.

Williams (6-foot-5, 302 pounds) is a 10th-year offensive lineman who spent his first nine NFL seasons with Jacksonville, which selected him in the second round (43rd overall) of the 2001 NFL Draft from the University of Michigan. He has appeared in 105 career regular-season games (100 starts) along with three playoff contests (3 starts).

Williams, whose 100 career starts rank seventh in Jaguars history, has started all 16 games for a season five times in his career. In the regular season, he has started 86 games at right tackle, 12 games at right guard and two contests at left tackle.

The veteran started all 16 games for the Jaguars during four consecutive seasons from 2003-06 as one of 14 players in the NFL to accomplish that feat at either the tackle or guard positions.     

An honorable mention All-Big Ten Conference selection as a senior at Michigan, Williams attended Pershing High School in Detroit. He was born on Jan. 26, 1979.
