Last week, fullback Eddie Williams was one of ten Redskins to be given his walking papers. The seventh-round pick from the 2009 draft thereafter cleared waivers, and he now has been signed by the Bears.
The team announced this afternoon that Williams has been signed to a one-year deal.
Williams was cut before the 2009 season began, and then added to the Washington practice squad. He was called up to the active roster on November 2. After being deactivated for three straight weeks, he was placed on injured reserve.
