The Chiefs have added a player to their backfield.

Agent Ian Greengross announced on Thursday that his client Damien Williams has signed with Kansas City. No terms of the deal were announced.

Williams visited with the Chiefs recently and found a fit on a team that also has Kareem Hunt, Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware and Akeem Hunt at running back.

Williams spent the last four years with the Dolphins and set career highs with 46 carries and 181 rushing yards last season. Williams also caught 20 passes and has 85 career catches as a receiver out of the backfield. He was also a regular on special teams in Miami, which should aid his bid for a role with the Chiefs this year.

  1. I don’t understand this signing? Certainly not sour grapes: he was excellent for the Dolphins as an occasional #2 RB and served well on Special Teams, but KC is loaded with RB talent AND depth. Damian Williams at least had a chance for more carries staying with Miami. I guess Frank Gore in town is forcing the issue. I wish him the best in KC.

  2. Special teams skills is the difference maker. My guess is that KC has been trying to get Ware and/or West to take a paycut but they are balking. Now that they signed another runningback who is also good on special teams, then 1 of the 2 mentioned are likely gone

  3. I don’t think the Chiefs are very confident of Spencer Wares progress from his knee injury early last year.
