Williams is entering his sixth NFL season and has 47 catches for 574 yards and four touchdowns in his career.
He was a sixth-round pick of the 49ers in 2010 out of Arizona State. He played three seasons for San Francisco, but lost two fumbles on punt returns in the NFC championship game in 2012 with the second setting up the Giants’ winning field goal in overtime.READ MORE: CDC Issues New COVID-19 Guidance For Holiday Season
Following that game, two Giants defenders, Jacquain Williams and Devin Thomas, said they were targeting Williams because they knew he had a history of concussions.
Williams was claimed off waivers by Kansas City in 2013, and signed with Denver the following year, but missed last season with a ruptured left Achilles tendon.
Williams is the son of Kenny Williams, executive vice president of the Chicago White Sox.MORE NEWS: New Video Shows Woman With Red Gas Can Inside Store Before Fire At Brooklyn Yeshiva
