Brandon Williams will compete for a role with the Seahawks as a reserve tight end, but he has minimal Fantasy value in the majority of leagues. In three seasons bouncing around with the Panthers and Dolphins, Williams has four career catches for 44 yards. Ignore him in all leagues on Draft Day.
Williams was signed by the Seahawks on Thursday, Stephen Cohen of seattlepi.com reports. Williams, a 28-year-old tight end, has recorded just four career catches so it's unlikely he'll make much of an impact in Seattle. He'll be a long-shot to get through the offseason without being cut, while Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson figure to lead the tight end corps.
Williams was waived by the Dolphins on Saturday. Williams saw just three snaps with the Dolphins since finding himself on the active roster in October. The 28-year-old tight end will likely have to bide his time until another team becomes interested in some depth on the offensive side of the ball.
The Dolphins promoted Williams from their practice squad to the active roster Monday. The Dolphins are seemingly healthy at the tight end spot, so it appears they simply want to increase their depth at the position. As the newest addition to the roster, Williams will slot in as the fourth tight end for the Dolphins.
The Panthers have waived tight end Brandon Williams, per Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer. The move frees up a spot on the roster for Carolina to add a fifth healthy receiver, Brenton Bersin, for the game Sunday.
The Panthers unveiled a lengthy injury report for Sunday's game against Atlanta. Out of the 13 players listed on the report, Star Lotulelei (ankle) was the only player ruled out for Week 11. Bene Benwikere (ankle), Brandon Williams (foot) and Charles Johnson (rest) were labeled questionable. The following players were deemed probable: Nate Chandler (toe), Jerricho Cotchery (hamstring), Roman Harper (rest), Kawann Short (ankle), Jonathan Stewart (ankle), Trai Turner (ankle), Melvin White (knee) and DeAngelo Williams (foot).
