ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - When Jamal Williams was trying to latch on and build a career with the San Diego Chargers in 1998, he was a victim of rookie hazing like all first-year players.
"They shaved off my eyebrows, so I had no facial expressions," Williams recalled this week. "So after awhile, guys were like, 'We don't know if he's happy, sad, or what."'
Reading his emotions this week is a similar challenge.
Williams, 34, played a dozen seasons with the Chargers but will be making his first appearance at Qualcomm Stadium as a visiting player when the Denver Broncos (3-6) head to San Diego (4-5) on Monday night. San Diego released him March 4, and just five days later, its AFC West rivals signed the nose tackle to a three-year contract.
