Chargers net ILB Williams
SAN DIEGO – The Chargers agreed to terms on a one-year deal with former Kansas City inside linebacker Demorrio Williams on Thursday.
The Chiefs released Williams, an eight-year veteran, Tuesday. Williams played in 12 games for Kansas City last year on special teams and as a reserve linebacker.
He’s expected to contribute as a coverage linebacker and on special teams for the Chargers.
The 31-year-old Williams started 13 games and made 117 tackles for the Chiefs in ’09, but played behind All-Pro Derrick Johnson the last two seasons.
Williams began his career with four seasons in Atlanta and has started 64 of 125 career games.
Takeo Spikes and Donald Butler started all 16 games for the Chargers last season at inside linebacker and will return in 2012. Williams and Jonas Mouton, coming off an injury that ended his rookie season, give the team depth at the position. Read
