Bears' Nick Williams: Re-signing with Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is re-signing with the Bears on a one-year contract, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.

Williams appeared in only two games for Chicago last season but evidently showed enough to earn another go-around with the team. However, he may again have trouble cracking a stacked Bears defensive front.

Bears' Nick Williams: Plays in three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had two tackles (one solo) in two games during 2018.

Williams was let go at roster cutdowns but rejoined the Bears a few days later. The 28-year-old was a healthy scratch in all but two games this season as he enters 2019 as an unrestricted free agent.

Bears' Nick Williams: Returns to Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams re-signed with the Bears on Sunday, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

Williams was let go on Saturday in order to keep a roster spot for tight end Adam Shaheen, who is now eligible to return from injured reserve this season since the Bears waited until after they reached the 53-man limit to place him on IR. Now that all that business has been taken care of, Williams was brought back to the active roster and will serve as a rotational piece along the defensive line when the Bears take on the Packers in the regular-season opener.

Bears' Nick Williams: Signs with Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams signed a contract with the Bears on Thursday.

Williams last played in 2016, recording eight tackles while playing in 10 games combined with the Dolphins and Chiefs. If he makes the Bears' roster in 2018 it will likely be as a depth lineman and special teams player.

Texans' DeAndre Hopkins: Establishing rapport with Savage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hopkins noted after Wednesday's practice that he and quarterback Tom Savage made several successful on-field connections during the day, John Harris of the Texans' official site reports.

The two hooked up on a nice back-shoulder pass with Hopkins adjusting to make the catch, as evidence of their rapport. Hopkins will be an important part of the offense this season, but we suspect the preferred plan will be to run the ball more than pass, particularly with an inexperienced quarterback at the helm, whether that be Savage or rookie Deshaun Watson.

Chiefs' Nick Williams: Records two tackles Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

WIlliams recorded two tackles (one solo) against the Chargers in Week 1.

Williams hasn't had much success in his career, but, if Week 1 is any indication, 2016 could be his best. He had just nine tackles since being drafted in 2013, all of which came last season. He's one of the primary backups at defensive end in Kansas City and will likely continue to see a mild number of snaps each week.
