Seahawks end Reggie Williams experiment
Reggie Williams’ comeback bid has ended, at least with the Seattle Seahawks.
Brought in originally as a minicamp tryout player, the veteran wide receiver who played in college at Washington, Williams signed with the Seahawks in April. His gig is up after a little more than two months as Seattle released Williams and fellow wide receiver Victor James. The moves were necessitated by the signing of fourth-round draft picks Walter Thurmond and E.J. Wilson, according to Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times.
Williams has five years of experience with the Jacksonville Jaguars but did not play last season following a drug arrest. Williams averaged 16.6 yards per reception in 2007 when he caught 10 touchdown passes. Per O’Neil, Williams was less impressive than Mike Williams, the former first-round bust of the Detroit Lions who was also given a second (last?) chance with the Seahawks. That right there does not bode well for Reggie Williams.
