DJ Williams' PR tour 2012 continues

DJ Williams' suspension(s) are close to over.

The linebacker will be available for the Broncos after week nine. That means he only has to sit out one more game at the behest of the league. How quickly his team decides to run him back out on the field remains to be seen. There is has been some speculation that Denver will take advantage of Williams' availability by mixing up defensive schemes and widening their play selection.

One way or another, Mr. Dyme Life will contribute for the Broncos as they make their push toward the playoffs. The Broncos and DJ Williams know that fan reaction will be mixed to his return. That's why the old PR jets have officially been scrambled. The Broncos are no dummies when it comes to managing public perception.

On Thursday night DJ sat down with Chris Bianchi of Mile High Sports for a lengthy interview. On Friday he did the same for Lindsay Jones, who recently left the Denver Post to join USA Today Sports. In each interview Williams expressed regret. In talking to Jones, however, he revealed that he is angry: "I thought I was dealt an unfair deal," Williams said, "there's a lot of bitterness about it."

Williams denies ever having used any form of performance enhancing drug and worries that what he calls false accusations will attach an asterisk to his career. He's lying, of course. He was flat busted. Not only did Dyme Life attempt to cheat, he did it in the most laughable way - with animal piss and a prosthetic wiener. That's what was reported by the testing official from the NFL who popped him. Williams failed to address these things. He made excuses and admitted to making mistakes but offered nothing in terms of a confession.

Also missing from Williams' many, many words was any promise to change. He had better. His whole "Dyme Life" schtick isn't going to fly any longer. He has allowed partying to be persona. Professionalism is the order of the day.
