#Broncos signing veteran ILB Avery Williamson to practice squad per league source

The 6’1, 245 pound veteran Williamson was drafted in the fifth round in 2014 by his hometown Tennessee Titans. He racked up 376 tackles over four seasons in Tennessee before signing with the Jets in 2018.
Williamson started all 16 games during his first season in New York. But a devastating torn ACL during the 2019 preseason kept Williamson sidelined for more than a calendar year.
After a brief 2020 stint in Pittsburgh, Williamson looks to revive his career in the Mile-High City. For the time being, the 29 year-old adds depth to the Broncos practice squad.
