K’Waun Williams won’t be joining the Bears after all. Claimed off waivers from the Browns just yesterday, Williams failed his physical today with Chicago.
Williams is in limbo once again and it’s just the latest turn in the cornerback’s strange offseason. The 25-year-old held himself out of the Browns’ preseason opener after injuring his ankle. The Browns believed that his ankle was fine and insisted that he play. When he did not comply, the team slapped him with a fine and suspension. Then, before the 75-man deadline, the Browns decided to drop him from the roster.
If Williams was healthy, he could have been a quality option for Chicago in the slot. Now, the Bears will continue to look for cornerback health. Meanwhile, today’s failed physical may give additional credence to Williams’ claim that he was too hurt to play in Cleveland.
