The Bears have been awarded former Browns defensive back K’Waun Williams off waivers, a source tells Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). If Williams can get healthy, the Bears could have a valuable slot cornerback for the coming year.
Williams made headlines this offseason as he was wrapped up in a high-profile spat with the Browns. Williams complained of bone spurs in his ankle and removed himself from practice. The Browns did not believe that his ankle issue was serious enough to warrant an absence from training camp and subsequently suspended and fined him for conduct detrimental to the team.
There were some rumblings that the third-year pro could retire, but all indications are that he intends to play.
