NFL busts take refuge in UFL

The UFL, which serves as the wayward home for some former top prospects in the NFL, has a couple familiar names back in the mix.

Reggie Williams, a first-round draft pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2004, has landed with the Sacramento franchise and was added to the team’s active roster. Williams was the ninth overall pick that year and has dealt with drug charges since. He was on the roster of the Seattle Seahawks last summer but was released when the team kept another second-chance wide receiver Mike Williams.

The UFL also announced that former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett, a huge disappointment as a third-round draft pick by Mike Shanahan in Denver, has been added to the active roster of the Omaha Nighthawks.
