Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports the Chicago Bears will work out free agent WR Darius Watts (Broncos) Tuesday, Sept. 5, according to a league source.

Watts is believed to have other visits in the works if he does not sign a contract with the Bears. ''Obviously, the Bears are a good situation,'' said Todd France, Watts' agent. ''And Darius is very interested in Chicago. We were OK with what happened in Denver. He needed a fresh start because there were a lot of things there that didn't make sense. I know the Bears have very big interest in Darius.''

Pat Graham, of the Associated Press, reports Denver Broncos WR Darius Watts dropped another pass in practice Tuesday, Aug. 1.

The inconsistent hands have followed Watts to camp, where he will make one nice catch on a long play and then drop a ball over the middle. On occasion, Shanahan has called Watts aside. Watts stayed after Tuesday's practice and worked on his pass routes.

"I was a little lackadaisical about being focused because I had the job. But, once you get it taken away from you, you're like 'Oh.'"

Broncos | Watts makes big impression during team's minicamp

Sat, 08 Jul 2006 18:34:46 -0700

The Associated Press reports Denver Broncos WR Darius Watts shined during the team's 16 days of workouts, which included their last minicamp. Head coach Mike Shanahan singled out Watts as the player who made the biggest strides over the offseason. Shanahan said, "I see him feeling a lot more comfortable with the system where he doesn't have to think. He can react. A lot of times when a guy can do that, then catching a ball becomes much easier. He still has great speed, he's very explosive and he can do things a lot of receivers can't do. More importantly for him, I think he feels a lot more comfortable with the scheme so he can go out there and execute and not think. He looked pretty good."

Broncos | Shanahan discusses Watts

Tue, 24 Jan 2006 23:29:16 -0800

Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan was asked Tuesday, Jan. 24, if WR Darius Watts fit into the team's future and he replied, "Darius was a guy that was inconsistent the year before and was not consistent enough in preseason to give him that opportunity to play. With the numbers two, three and four wide receivers playing well on special teams, he didn't get an opportunity. Now, he still probably has as much ability as any receiver I've been around. This offseason will be crucial for him to get consistent catching the ball and when he does, he'll be a difference-maker, and if he doesn't, then he won't be on the field."
