Jaguars Expected To Sign RB David Williams Off Broncos’ Practice Squad

Leonard Fournette is out because of a persistent hamstring problem, and the Jaguars just received news Corey Grant is going to miss the rest of the season. They plan to look outside to patch up this situation.

The Jags intend to sign David Williams off the Broncos’ practice squad, Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post reports (on Twitter). The Broncos selected Williams in the seventh round of this year’s draft out of Arkansas.

Williams did not make Denver’s 53-man roster, seeing Phillip Lindsay quickly usurp him en route to the team’s 53-man unit. The Broncos cut both Williams and De’Angelo Henderson after preseason play. Henderson landed on the Jets’ practice squad, and Williams stayed in Denver on the Broncos’ 10-man taxi squad.

Jacksonville currently has T.J. Yeldon and recent practice squad promotion Brandon Wilds as its only healthy backs. Williams would add a third name to that contingent. Fournette remains on the active roster but is expected to miss more time.

Sunday NFL Transactions: AFC West

Listed below are the Sunday roster moves for the four AFC West teams. Following the 53-man roster cutdown deadline yesterday, many teams will make slight tweaks to their rosters, claiming players off waivers or signing guys who clear waivers. Those transactions for the Broncos, Chiefs, Chargers, and Raiders are noted below.

Additionally, as of 12:00pm CT today, teams can begin constructing their 10-man practice squads. You can check out our glossary entry on practice squads to brush up on those changes, as well as all the other guidelines that govern the 10-man units, whose players practice with the team but aren’t eligible to suit up on Sundays.

Broncos Agree To Terms With 7 Draftees

The Broncos made 10 picks in this past draft, and seven of those have agreed to terms on their four-year rookie contracts, Mike Klis of 9News tweets. While Bradley Chubb is not among this group, Denver has the majority of its 2018 class locked in. Here’s the full rundown:

Sutton, though, is under contract now. He’s the most notable draft investment the Broncos have made at wide receiver since Demaryius Thomas in 2010, profiling as a slightly higher-regarded second-round pick than Cody Latimer four years ago. The SMU product is expected to develop behind Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders while potentially working in as a No. 3 wideout this season. Hamilton will attempt to do the same, and the former Nittany Lions standout could well compete with 2017 draftee Carlos Henderson for the Broncos’ slot job — one the franchise has struggled to fill since Wes Welker departed.

Fumagalli will compete for time in an uncertain tight end group, an all-Big Ten-produced contingent featuring intriguing second-year player Jake Butt and thus-far-underwhelming fourth-year man Jeff Heuerman. This shapes up to be an interesting competition. Fellow Big Ten alum Jewell will likely be thrust into work as a special-teamer and reserve behind inside linebackers Brandon Marshall and Todd Davis.

The only Broncos picks still unsigned are Chubb and third-rounders Royce Freeman and Isaac Yiadom.
