Williams, 29, wound up signing on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Western Oregon back in 2015. He managed to make the Chargers’ 53-man roster as a rookie and later returned to Los Angeles on a one-year restricted tender worth $2.914 million for the 2018 season.
From there, Williams agreed to a four-year, $44 million contract with $22 million guaranteed from the Raiders in 2019. He was released following the 2020 season and signed a one-year deal with the Lions.
In 2021, Williams has appeared in one game for the Lions and caught two passes for 14 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
