Kansas City Chiefs re-sign wide receiver Kyle WIlliams

The Kansas City Chiefs have re-signed wide receiver Kyle Williams according to Adam Caplan on Twitter.

Williams was claimed off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers back in November and ended up tearing his ACL a week later. That was the second time that Williams has torn his ACL in his NFL career, so it appears that he could be a long shot to make the 53 man roster.

The former sixth round draft pick back in 2010 has only 45 receptions for 562 career receiving yards and four touchdowns. He was injured most of the 2010 season where he played in only five games with the 49ers and only recorded one reception for eight yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He’s most known for his fumble against the New York Giants in the NFC Championship game a couple of years ago where he fumbled in overtime. The New York Giants kicked a game-winning field goal that would eventually lead to them winning the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots.

    I think that you missed some really important facts about Williams in this post. Williams not only fumbled once, he fumbled twice, both on kicks that cost the game for the ‘Niners. Oh, and the ‘Niners QB? Alex Smith. Those fumbled may very well have changed the course of history for both the ‘Niners and Smith.

    • David Miniel

      I know that he fumbled twice.

  • Juiced

    Why rip and bash the guy when he is still good enough to be a 2/3 guy? Who else can we say that about on our roster other than Avery or possibly Jenkins?
