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.
