It was reported on Thursday that the Falcons have signed running back Damien Williams to a one-year contract. Williams joins the Falcons after spending last season with the Bears, where he started 12 games and carried for 164 yards on 40 attempts.
The Dolphins signed Williams as an undrafted free agent in 2014. After four years in Miami, the running back made the move to Kansas City in 2018, where he flourished for the next two seasons.
The Chiefs gave Williams more playing time when they cut Kareem Hunt, their previous starting running back. In December 2018, Williams renewed his contract with Kansas City, committing to the team for another two years and receiving $8.1 million in salary.
Williams spent two seasons with the Chiefs, playing in 27 games during that time. He rushed for 754 yards and scored 13 touchdowns. He also assisted Kansas City in winning a Super Bowl, a contest in which the running back stood out.
