Dolphins Sign Damian Williams

The Dolphins have signed free agent wide receiver Damian Williams to a one-year deal, a source tells James Walker of ESPN (on Twitter). The deal will pay Williams $800K.

As the Dolphins announced this afternoon, Williams was in Miami earlier today for a workout and it sounds like things went swimmingly for the soon-to-be 26-year-old. Up until today, the USC product spent his entire four-year career with the Titans. Williams hauled in just 15 catches for 178 yards, a significant step back in production compared to his previous campaigns. In 2011, Williams caught 45 balls for 592 yards and five touchdowns. In 2012, the 6’1″ receiver recorded 30 catches for 324 yards.

The Dolphins are searching for healthy veteran receivers to add depth behind starters Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline and the former third-round pick could do just that. Backups Brandon Gibson and Armon Binns are both coming off season-ending knee injuries.
