Dolphins sign Damian Williams

AP

The free agent visit Damian Williams took to Miami has turned into an extended stay.

ESPN.com’s James Walker reports the Dolphins have reached a one-year, $800,000 deal with Williams, a fifth-year wideout from USC who spent his first four seasons with the Titans.

The 25-year-old Williams joins a Miami receiving group with clear-cut starters in Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline. Brandon Gibson and Armon Binns are among the Dolphins’ other WR options.

The 6-foot-1, 193-pound Williams has caught 106 passes for 1,313 yards and five TDs in regular season play. He was one of the Titans’ third-round picks in 2010.

  1. Don’t know this guy. Hope he breaks through after a quiet start. Un expensive back up and little risk. Front Office is doing an OK job fir3 now. I will grade then after the draft.

  2. should have gone to san diego..why go to a team where you will be buried o nthe depth chart. chargers need wr help after allen and im sure he could up his value catching from rivers.

  3. former 3rd rounder with some experience and a good college career. never know…..cant say anything negative about the GM Hickey so far. Better than signing a washout like Burleson.

  4. This doesn’t make Ryan Tannehill a better leader as was posted yesterday. What this kid needs is a first class owner and winning head coach!
    END THE COMMITMENT TO MEDIOCRITY! SELL THE TEAM, STEPHEN LOSS!
    FIRE JOE PHILBIN!

  5. Ok this is a very good signing for us for those of you who do not know who he is. I live in Titan country and here is the skinny. NO off the field issues, good locker room guy, has very good hands and runs good routs. he has good speed and can get yac!! He will challenge Gibson and probably will be our punt and or kickoff returner as he has experience on special teams. Overall a good player not great but good but for the amount of the contract a great signing!!! Good job Hickey!!

  6. Dear Fellow Dolphins Fans,

    Stop the Negative stuff already! Leave that to the Jets and Pats Homers ( they are scared of us). This is clearly a Depth signing for near Vet. Minimum. He brings competition as a Camp Body. Don’t read too far into any of this. 90 players in Davie… That is what it means.

  7. Sounds like we need more players like him. Good player, does his job, not gonna end up in the news. It is a team game and it takes more that the spoiled brat headline grabbing divas to make up a team.

  8. Solid depth player. Never quite broke through into a bigger role, especially with the Titans drafting other receivers (Wright, Hunter) so high the past couple of years, but made some clutch plays with his limited chances. Might not have reached his ceiling yet.

    Wish him luck.

  9. Like what I here about this young man don’t know anything about his work but from what some of you have said looks a good addition. Competion is key for a team like Miami. Hungry players having something to prove is a good thing. Maybe Hickey is turning us into the Miami Dolphins we all want, who knows but there does seem to be a plan. If we can stay relatively healthy with some of the old boys we signed we might be on the up.

  10. As a Titans fan, I hate to see Damian go. He is a solid WR, doesn’t cause any trouble, & doesn’t pick up dumb penalties.He returned 5 kicks for a total of 123 (Long 37) this past season, and was injured on the final one and missed the rest of the season. He Only returned 4 punts; 3 were fair catches & 1 returned for 12 yards. He did have a slight case of the dropsies early on, but improved somewhat over time.
