Bills Waive RB Karlos Williams

ESPN’s Adam Schefter, citing a league source, reports that the Bills are placing RB Karlos Williams on waivers.

The Bills have already confirmed the news.

Williams received a four-game suspension for violating the league’s Substances of Abuse Policy. He also reported to offseason workouts between 20-25 pounds overweight.

Buffalo just activated Williams from the Non-Football Illness list close to a week ago.

Williams, 23, was taken in the fifth round of last year’s NFL Draft by the Bills. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $2,495,352 rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season.

According to OverTheCap.com, waiving Williams will free up $525,000 in available cap space while creating $53,838 in dead money.

In 2015, Williams appeared in 11 games for the Bills and ran for 517 yards on 93 carries (5.6 YPC) to go along with 11 receptions for 96 yards receiving and 9 total touchdowns.
