At Clemson (2011-14), Williams tallied 161 tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss, five sacks, 24 quarterback pressures, four pass breakups, one recovered fumble and two blocked kicks in 1,235 snaps over 53 games (17 starts) in his career.
Williams last saw game action in the pros with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2016 (four games; four QB hits and two tackles).
The Broncos host Tampa Bay on Sunday (4:25 p.m.).

The Broncos have officially signed Blake Bortles and have promoted safety P.J. Locke to the active roster. DL DeShawn Williams is expected to be called up to the active roster at some point this week in the wake of injuries to Dre’Mont Jones and DeMarcus Walker.— Nick Kosmider (@NickKosmider) September 24, 2020
