Chiefs sign RB Kerwynn Williams

Chiefs sign RB Kerwynn Williams”

NFL Network first reported Kerwynn Williams' signing.

The Chiefs have added another free-agent running back to their roster, agreeing to a contract with Kerwynn Williams, a source confirmed to The Star on Sunday. He spent four seasons there, participating in 37 games (starting six), tallying 971 yards rushing, four touchdowns, and 126 yards receiving.

The Cardinals had some interest in re-signing Williams, but he would have had a limited role behind a healthy David Johnson.

Williams played behind running back Adrian Peterson, who the Cardinals acquired from the New Orleans Saints after Week 5. He put up 426 rushing yards and a touchdown. He also caught 10 passes for 93 yards. He entered the league as a 2013 seventh-round pick by the Indianapolis Colts and made their practice squad before joining the San Diego Chargers' practice squad later that season. Williams returned 16 kicks and 21 punts past year for Arizona, which means that Williams' addition gives the Chiefs some versatility for Dave Toub's unit. Spencer Ware is typically considered No. 2 behind Hunt given that he was the starter before getting injured last season. He was then signed to the Cardinals practice squad.

Williams may be seeking a fresh start, but he'll need to turn heads in a big way to survive Kansas City's logjam at the position.

Along with Johnson, Arizona native D.J. Foster, Bronson Hill, T.J. Logan, Elijhaa Penny and Darius Victor make up the rest of the running backs group.
