  • Avery Williamson: Signs with practice squad

    Williamson signed with the Broncos' practice squad Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Williamson was with Denver earlier this season before a stint with Tennessee that saw its end when he was released on Nov. 2. Williamson will try to make his way to the active roster, as the Broncos are dealing with multiple injuries to their linebacker unit.

  • Avery Williamson: Released by Tennessee

    Williamson was released by the Titans on Tuesday.

    Williamson made only two appearances for the Titans this season, but he played exclusively special teams and didn't record any stats. The 29-year-old's veteran experience will likely draw interest from teams around the league.

  • Titans' Avery Williamson: Back with Titans

    Williamson agreed to return to the Titans' active roster Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    The Titans signed Williamson off the Broncos' practice squad. The 29-year-old suited up for all but one of 64 potential games in Tennessee after being drafted in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. After accumulating time with the Jets, Steelers and Broncos across the previous four seasons, he figures to bring experience and depth to the team's linebacker unit going forward.

  • Steelers' Avery Williamson: Monster tackling effort

    Williamson posted 14 tackles (nine solo) and a sack in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Colts.

    Williamson made his first start for the Steelers in Week 14. Over the three games as a starter, Williamson has posted 32 tackles and a sack. He'll look to cap off a successful run in the regular-season finale against the Browns.

  • Steelers' Avery Williamson: Double-digit tackles Sunday

    Williamson recorded 11 tackles (nine solo) across 67 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

    Williamson led the team in tackles Sunday, as he now has 20 tackles over the past two weeks. Sunday was by far Williamson's highest snap count on defense (89 percent) since being traded to the Steelers. He'll now shift his focus to a primetime matchup with the Bengals.

  • Steelers' Avery Williamson: Nine tackles in place of Spillane

    Williamson finished with a team-high nine tackles (six solo) and a tackle for loss in Monday's 23-17 loss to Washington.

    Williamson filled in admirably as the starting inside linebacker with Robert Spillane (knee) out. The trade deadline acquisition from the Jets should continue to start for as long as Spillane is sidelined.

  • Steelers' Avery Williamson: Filling in as starter

    Williamson is expected to take over the starting inside linebacker role in replace of the injured Robert Spillane (knee), Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

    After being traded to the Steelers in November, Williamson will have the opportunity to start at inside linebacker because of the knee injury Spillane suffered Monday. The veteran had essentially been insurance for the Steelers' linebacking corps, recording just three tackles with the Steelers prior to Monday, but if the loss against Washington is any indication, expect Williamson to be a worthy IDP option as the full-time starter (nine tackles).

  • Steelers' Avery Williamson: Shifts to 53-man roster

    Williamson had his roster exemption lifted Saturday, and he's officially on the Steelers' 53-man roster, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

    The Steelers traded for Williamson earlier in the week, and he's passed the necessary COVID-19 protocols to join the team for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys. Williamson handled a starting role with the Jets this year, as he posted 59 tackles, three pass breakups and an interception through seven games. However, the veteran is expected to serve as an inside linebacker Robert Spillane's backup in Pittsburgh.

  • Steelers' Avery Williamson: Filling reserve role

    Williamson is expected to serve as the backup to Robert Spillane after being acquired by the Steelers on Sunday, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Williamson recorded nine tackles Sunday afternoon for the Jets against the Chiefs and was shipped to the Steelers by the end of the day. The 28-year-old totaled 59 tackles through seven games this season, but he'll be filling a reserve role for his new team. He may not be available for Week 9 since he won't be allowed to join the team until Saturday due to the COVID-19 restrictions when heading to a new team.

  • Steelers' Avery Williamson: Pittsburgh-bound in trade

    Williamson was traded to the Steelers on Sunday along with a 2022 seventh-round pick for Pittsburgh's 2022 fifth-rounder, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Williamson goes from the only winless team in the league to the lone undefeated team. Once he gets acclimated to his new surroundings, Williamson figures to slide into a starting inside linebacker role for the Steelers. He suited up for the Jets earlier Sunday, leading the team with nine tackles in a 35-9 loss to the Chiefs.

  • Jets' Avery Williamson: Another double-digit tackle game

    Williamson racked up 13 tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 18-10 loss to the Bills.

    Williamson has 24 tackles in the last two games. New York's defense will likely spend the majority of the game on the field in Week 8 against the Chiefs, which should give the veteran inside linebacker plenty of opportunities to pad his tackle total.

  • Jets' Avery Williamson: Eleven tackles in Week 6

    Williamson recorded a team-high 11 tackles, all solo, in Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Dolphins.

    Williamson played well once again, but few of his teammates on either side of the ball can say the same. The 28-year-old inside linebacker seems to be fully recovered from last year's ACL surgery, as Williamson now has 34 tackles, an interception and three passes defensed in his last four games.
