Dolphins add receiver Stephen Williams

The Miami Dolphins continue to add to their receiving corps this offseason.

After drafting LSU receiver Jarvis Landry in the second round and Coastal Carolina receiver Matt Hazel in the sixth round of last week’s draft, the Dolphins announced the addition of veteran Stephen Williams on Thursday.

Williams has spent portions of four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks and Jacksonville Jaguars. At 6-foot-5, Williams is clearly the tallest receiving option on the Dolphins roster.

Williams has a fantastic preseason for the Seahawks and earned his way onto the team’s opening day roster last year. He caught seven passes for 236 yards and three touchdowns in the preseason and showed potential as a deep threat. He was ultimately released to make room on Seattle’s roster for Bruce Irvin, who was coming off a four-game suspension.

Williams was claimed off waivers by Jacksonville but landed on injured reserve in November. He was released by the Jaguars on Monday.

Williams has appeared in 19 games in four years with nine catches for 101 yards, all as a rookie with Arizona in 2010.

In addition, Miami announced they had signed undrafted free agent defensive back Demetrius Wright and released receiver Ryan Lankford.

    In this league you only get so many chances. This is his last big oppotunity. Phins have the need for his size and physicality..worth a shot for them to take.
