Williams had four solo tackles in five games between the Bears and Buccaneers in 2018. Williams started the season with Tampa Bay but was waived off injured reserve with a hamstring injury, only to join Chicago in mid-December. The 27-year-old heads into free agency having played minimal defensive snaps since 2016 with the Jets.
Williams signed a contract with the Bears on Wednesday, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports. Williams should provide the Bears with an additional body on the back end. He played significant defensive snaps early in his career, but Williams will likely have a better chance sticking around in Chicago if he can prove to be a contributor on special teams.
