Kyle Williams Is Back With The Chiefs


Add another receiver to the mix for the Chiefs. Kyle Williams tweeted his is returning to Kansas City.

Williams tore his ACL shortly after being signed by the Chiefs in November. Williams is known for his excellent speed, but he has now suffered ACL injuries in each of the last two seasons. How much of that speed remains is unknown.

Kansas City enters the draft with Dwayne Bowe, Donnie Avery, A.J. Jenkins, Junior Hemingway, and Weston Dressler as the top candidates to earn spots on the roster. It is anticipated the Chiefs will also add at least one wide receiver in the draft.

There is a chance Williams makes the roster via the physically unable to perform list and then ends up on the team in the second half of the 2014 season. Given the Chiefs’ need for depth this might be a good play for them.

UPDATE:

    He’s the kind of explosive, speedy guy that Reid likes. Makes sense. Athletic guy who comes cheap. Pack a lot of talent at the back end of the receiving corps and let them fight it out. Maybe you’ll stumble across a gem or two.

    Alex Smith’s the happiest guy in the building right now. #sarcasm

      Hey guess I called it a couple weeks ago huh lol remember my question for you

  • Tyler Alexander

    I’m sure he’ll only get the league minimum so he won’t effect the salary cap and has had some production with Alex Smith at QB before the injuries… there’s very little downside to this in my opinion.

    Adam Teicher has a thread up over at ESPN where he lists the voluntary incentive workout bonuses for many players under contract. Runs from 300 grand for Berry down to the $8,000 or so level. But, I noticed there was no such bonus for future reserve types, such as Williams, McKnight and Dressler. Do they get some sort of pay as well?
