According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, former Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle has joined the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad “with the idea of going to the active roster.”
Williams became a free agent this offseason, after his one-year contract with the Ravens expired. Williams, 33, was originally drafted by the Ravens in the third round of the 2013 NFL draft, No. 94 overall. He played nine seasons for the franchise and was a dominant run-defender.
It appears the Chiefs are nabbing an in-shape Williams, as his social media lately is about his recent workouts.

If reports from Schefter are true that he expects to join the active roster, it makes a good pairing. According to football outsiders, the Chiefs are just below average as a run defense, ranked No. 18 in DVOA. With Williams on the interior, they may not be getting much in terms of pass rush, but they’ll certainly get a defender who can take on double teams and free up fellow defensive linemen and edge rushers beside him.
