After sitting out the 2015 season, it was going to be difficult for Williams to crack the team’s 53-man roster in the coming weeks, so this doesn’t come as a big surprise.
Williams, 29, is a former fourth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2010. He played out his rookie contract and later signed a six-year extension with the Bucs in July of 2013.
However, he had numerous off-the-field issues that led to the Buccaneers trading him to the Bills less than a year later for a sixth-round pick that later became Robert Herron. Buffalo elected to waive Williams towards the end of the 2014 season.
Williams signed a one-year, $760,000 contract with the Chiefs back in April.
In 2014, Williams appeared in five games and caught eight passes for 142 yards receiving and a touchdown.
