The Denver Broncos are reportedly not planning to re-sign cornerback K’Waun Williams during this offseason, as indicated by a report from Chris Tomasson of the Denver Gazette. While this decision may not come as a surprise, it remains noteworthy.

Williams, who is 32 years old, is among the 15 in-house free agents slated to become available next week. The Broncos have already secured new contracts for offensive lineman Quinn Bailey, linebacker Jonas Griffith, and wide receiver Michael Bandy, with efforts underway to retain safety P.J. Locke as well.

The decision not to bring back Williams stems from his entire 2023 season spent on injured reserve while recovering from an ankle injury. Additionally, he missed three games due to injury during the 2022 season.

In the past two years, Williams received a salary slightly exceeding $5 million during his tenure with the Denver Broncos. Throughout this period, he recorded 44 tackles, seven pass breakups, one sack, and one interception. Williams primarily operated in the slot cornerback position in 2022, a role that was assumed by Ja’Quan McMillian in the 2023 season. It seems likely that McMillian will retain this role for the upcoming 2024 season.
