Williams, 30, was taken with the No. 28 overall pick back in 2013. He played out the final year of his rookie contract after the Broncos declined to pick up his fifth-year option.

The Titans signed Williams to a three-year, $16.5 million contract that included $7.25 million guaranteed in 2017 before releasing him the following year. After a brief stint with the Lions, Williams signed on with the Dolphins and finished out the year in Miami. 

In 2018, Williams appeared in 14 games for the Lions and Dolphins and recorded 14 tackles and no sacks.

Grissom, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Patriots back in 2015. He spent a portion of his rookie season on the Patriots’ practice squad before being called up later on.

Grissom was on and off the Patriots’ active roster before joining Colts last season. 

In 2018, Grissom appeared in four games for the Patriots and recorded one tackle and no sacks.
