Saints' Jonathan Williams: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Williams joined the Saints a little under two weeks ago after Daniel Lasco (neck) was moved to injured reserve, but the former Arkansas standout has yet to make his New Orleans debut. That's unlikely to change anytime soon unless one of the three running backs ahead of Williams on the depth chart -- Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara and Trey Edmunds -- suffers an injury.

Saints' Jonathan Williams: Joining New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints signed Williams off the Broncos' practice squad Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Expected to serve as a change-of-pace option to LeSean McCoy in Buffalo heading into this season, the Bills pulled an audible and waived Williams at the end of the preseason slate, likely hoping he would pass through waivers unclaimed. Once he did, though, the Broncos offered Williams a practice-squad salary more than four times the minimum, and he's resided in Denver in the meantime. With Tuesday's transaction, Williams will join a Saints rushing attack ranked third in the NFL at 142.2 yards per game. While Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara will continue to serve as a high-quality one-two punch out of the backfield, the addition of Williams suggests he was brought in to ease the burden on those two as the team seeks its first playoff berth since 2013.

Jonathan Williams: Well compensated on practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams received a $510,000 salary to join the Broncos' practice squad, more than quadrupling the $7,200 per week minimum, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

The salary suggests Williams won't be kept on the practice squad for long, likely either joining the active roster or getting cut free entirely within the next few weeks. The 2016 fifth-round pick was one of the most surprising cuts of the weekend, as the previous expectation was that he'd be LeSean McCoy's top backup in Buffalo. The Broncos seemingly have a deep backfield with C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles, De'Angelo Henderson and eventually Devontae Booker (wrist), but none of the bunch is anywhere near being a sure thing.

Jonathan Williams: Joins Broncos practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos signed Williams to their practice squad Tuesday, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

Williams was one of the most shocking cuts over this past weekend but he will now get a chance to extend his career as a member of the Broncos' practice squad. However, anytime could sign Williams to their active roster or the Broncos could promote the back if they suffer injuries in the backfield this season.

Jonathan Williams: Rejoins Buffalo's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills signed Williams to their practice squad Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Williams was among the more surprising cuts over the past weekend, as the expectation was that he'd enter the season as the top understudy to starting back LeSean McCoy. Instead, Buffalo elected to proceed with Mike Tolbert, Joe Banyard and Taiwan Jones as their depth options in the backfield, but the team will still have ample opportunity to oversee Williams' development now that the 2016 fifth-round pick will have a spot on the practice squad. In order to secure Williams' services, however, the Bills had to shell out a $510,000 contract, a hefty sum for a player not on the 53-man roster.
