Williams, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Green Bay Packers back in 2011. The Packers placed him on waivers at the start of the 2013 season.
Williams later caught on with the Patriots, but was once again waived before the start of the 2014 regular season.
Last year, Williams appeared in nine games for New England, but didn’t record a single reception.
