So much for my prediction that he would be a starter this season. Williams had been saying all the right things this entire offseason, and he showed up to the OTAs down about 30 pounds. I don't know this, but I would suspect there has to be some type of off the field issue that contributed to this because of the timing. From all accounts his performance has been inconsistent, but inconsistent performance alone typically doesn't get a player released this early in camp.
Former New York Jets receiver Chris Davis will take Williams' spot on the roster. That could get confusing.
