Waived by Washington on March 5, 2010, Williams was signed by Chicago on March 10 and spent the entire 2010 season on the Bears’ practice squad. He was with the Bears through training camp this season.
A four-year letterman at the University of Idaho (2005-08), Williams recorded 100 receptions for 1,205 yards and 11 touchdowns as a wide receiver. He also amassed 195 rushing yards and three scores on 19 attempts. As a senior, he earned first-team All-Western Athletic Conference honors after leading the team in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown receptions. A native of San Mateo, Calif., the 6-1, 242-pound Williams attended Aragon High School.
