This former team captain is one of the highest paid players on the Broncos' roster, standing to rake in $5 million for this upcoming season.
That's a nice chunk of cash for a guy that might not even be on the final roster coming into the season. The Broncos could decide to part ways with the linebacker following a series of off-field issues and questionable behavior.
Williams is facing a six-game suspension to start the 2012 season stemming from a violation of the league's substance abuse policy. He is also scheduled to appear in court in August for a DUI arrest from November, 2010. If convicted, he could serve jail time and potentially tack on another four games to his suspension.
Perplexingly, Williams released photos of the Broncos' defensive playbook out into the twitterverse. That's not exactly the level of common sense and professionalism one would expect from a guy making the kind of money that he is.
