10:40 AM ET 11.03 | In his two-months-long forced absence from football, D.J. Williams has grown remorseful about his off-field errors, bored without the structure of practice and games, and bitter at the NFL. Williams is about to serve the final week of his nine-game suspension, punishment handed down by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for two violations of the NFL personal conduct policy. That anger, Williams said in an exclusive interview with USA TODAY Sports Friday, is directed internally for the bad choices he made, and externally at the people who have taken shots at him in traditional and social media. "There's a lot of bitterness about it. For the rest of my career, I'll have an asterisk beside my name, saying that I used performance enhancers or steroids or whatever," Williams said. "People forget that when I was 16, I was 6-2, 225. I went to (the University of) Miami at 233 (pounds). My dad is huge, my mom competes in fitness and body competition -- that's the genetics that I have gotten passed on. It sucks because I'll always be questioned on my ability and what I do as if I did steroids." He is also angry at the NFL, he says, for botching a routine drug test.

He has no complaint. However, the Pit Bull whose urine sample he provided as his has been truly harmed by this character assassination and personification by DJ. I hope he files a civil law suit for defamation.

He's really mad at being held accountable for his repeated violations of the rules. That's unfortunate. He should be more concerned that the Bronco linebacker corps. is emerging without him and Wesley Woodyard is going to make it difficult for the coaches to find playing time for him.

I suppose you could always fall back on that degree you got from Miami, D.J.

Apparently none....original six game suspension was for supplying a nonhuman urine sample for a random test. Another three games was recently added as a result of a drunk driving charge.

Obviously, urine samples were not a basis for the degree he received from Miami.

He couldn't supply his own. There was no one there to whistle to him.
