The Giants declined to tender Williams a contract for 2019, making him an unrestricted free agent, SportsNet New York reports.
Williams spent all of last season on injured reserve due to hip and shoulder injuries sustained during the preseason. Now healthy, the 25-year-old defensive end will look to earn a depth role with another franchise. Williams has appeared in two games since going undrafted out of Tennessee in 2015, recording two tackles across that span.
Williams (hip) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.
Williams is working through a hip injury and is now planted on IR through the end of the league year unless he agrees to an injury settlement.
