Judge dismisses Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams case against NFL
A judge dismissed Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams’ case against the NFL, which was based on a six-game suspension the league gave him, according to Profootballtalk.com.
Christine M. Arguello, the judge in the case, dismissed the case granting the NFL’s motion for summary judgment saying she had no authority to overturn the original sentence handed down by the league.
In March, Williams was suspended for six games for failing a drug test after the league said he provided non-human urine samples during testing.
“We are considering an appeal,” Williams’ attorney Peter Ginsberg told Profootballtalk.com.
Williams has had his issues since entering the league in 2004. In 2010, he was arrested for DUI, but the league did not punish him.
Earlier this month, Williams tweeted out his team’s defensive playbook saying he wanted his fans to know “what’s going on with their teams and fav player.”
The Broncos first six opponents in 2012 are the Steelers, Falcons, Texans, Raiders, Patriots, and Chargers.
