In the last 10 drafts, 14 wide receivers have been taken in the top 10 picks.

Two of those wideouts now play on the same Canadian Football League team.

Reggie Williams, the No. 9 overall pick nine years ago, has signed with the Toronto Argonauts. Last week, Toronto added Mike Williams, whom the Lions took No. 10 overall in 2005. Reggie Williams and Mike Williams were also briefly teammates in Seattle in 2010. 

Now 30, Reggie Williams caught 183 passes for 2,322 yards and 18 touchdowns from 2004 through 2008 with the Jaguars. He has not appeared in an NFL game since. According to the Argonauts, Williams didn’t play football in 2012.

    I don’t understand why more older players or players that can’t get picked up in the NFL don’t go to the CFL, Chad, TO, Housh, Tebow, just to name a few would fill a pretty decent roster would definitely get better ratings…

    either he needs the money or he just loves playing football…or a combo of the two.

    Wait I thought you said Williams hadn’t played since 2008? I’m just kidding I really don’t care.

    I wonder if he will still perform elaborate touchdown dances on 3 yard receptions.

    sad situation. Reggie was one of the best college receivers I’ve seen in a long time at UW. don’t know whether the kids got problems with work ethic or understanding of offense, but he was great.
