Duke Williams: Signed by Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams signed with the Colts.

The Colts need depth with Clayton Geathers placed on injured reserve with a neck injury. Williams played nine games with the Bills this season, but had just four tackles. He'll likely have a limited role with Indianapolis.

Bills' Duke Williams: Tuesday cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was released by the Bills on Tuesday.

Williams was drafted in the fourth round of 2013 and while he had a few big plays in his time with the Bills, never really proved he could handle a heavy workload at safety. The team will replace him with a guy that has a better chance to fill that role, veteran James Ihedigbo.

Bills' Duke Williams: Opportunity passes
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams has just four tackles on the season and hasn't been credited with one since Week 3.

Williams was a definite option for more playing time when starting safety Aaron Williams landed on injured reserve, but Robert Blanton has won that job. Duke Williams saw just one snap on defense in Week 8, and remains far off the IDP radar.

Bills' Duke Williams: Gets the start as part of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Williams ended up starting Sunday's game at strong safety over Aaron Williams, but in the end only saw 21 defensive snaps, BuffaloBills.com reports. Duke Williams logged just one tackle and no other stats.

Aaron Williams is the starter and his snap could will be ramped up as the season progresses as he gets more comfortable following offseason neck surgery, but at least the Bills finally have more confidence in Duke after three seasons of ups and downs. If anything ever happened to Aaron Williams or free safety Corey Graham, Duke might end up being worthy of IDP consideration.

Bills' Duke Williams: Picking up his game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Aaron Williams still in concussion protocol, Duke Williams could be in line for a significant role to start the season, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said coach Rex Ryan, "Man I'll tell you what. He's the man that's bringing in the coffee. That's how much time he spends in here. So he wants it bad. And I see a different player. I see a player with way more confidence."

Williams was a fourth-rounder in 2013 and hasn't played much in his first three seasons, but he did make some plays in 2015 and has seemingly taken another step forward. While Aaron Williams is expected to be ready for the start of the season, it looks like Duke has a sure spot on the team, likely as the No. 3 or No. 4 safety. And Aaron Williams' health has been no sure thing.
