Kyle Williams re-signs with Kansas City Chiefs

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Spor

After gaining interest from other teams in FA, Williams adds another option at wideout and special teams for the Chiefs in 2014.

The Kansas City Chiefs have officially signed one of their own free agents with the news that wide receiver Kyle Williams has re-signed with the team.

Williams originally came over from the San Francisco 49ers after being claimed on waivers. Unfortunately, Williams never got a real chance to show off his talent for the team since he tore his ACL just nine days after signing with the team last fall.

Despite coming off of the injury, Williams still had suitors this offseason.

The Chiefs, however, do give Williams the best chance to earning playing time, which might have made re-signing with KC an easy choice. Given the loss of Dexter McCluster to the Tennessee Titans, the Chiefs have potential spots open in the return game. And given the need at wide receiver, Williams also has the chance to step up there as well.

The 25-year-old was originally a sixth round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft by the 49ers. He has 47 catches for 574 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns in his career. In addition, he has 21 career punt returns and 28 career kick returns, giving the Chiefs another somewhat experienced return option alongside Knile Davis and Joe McKnight.

Update: 1-year deal for Williams...
