ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos continued adding talent to the defensive line on Tuesday, announcing that defensive lineman Jamal Williams has agreed to terms.
Williams has spent his previous 12 seasons with the San Diego Chargers, where he recorded 436 tackles, 13 sacks, one interception, 22 pass breakups, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 148 regular-season games.
Now the three-time Pro Bowler will reunite with defensive line coach Wayne Nunnely, who coached him in San Diego from 1998-2008.
Jamal is a leader and a proven high-end player at his position, General Manager Brian Xanders said. He has anchored some of the NFLs best run defenses during his career, and we are fortunate to add him to our roster.
Williams led the Chargers to a top-seven NFL ranking in run defense in seven of his 12 years with the club, including league-leading seasons in 1998 and 2005.
In 2008, he finished with the second most tackles in his career -- 67 -- including a personal-best 13 tackles for a loss, and was named San Diegos co-MVP, Defensive Player of the Year and Lineman of the Year.
