K’Wuan Williams’ relationship with the Cleveland Browns soured after there was a discrepancy whether or not the cornerback was healthy or not.
After being waived by Cleveland on Monday, the corner has a fresh start with the Chicago Bears.
Chicago claimed the third-year defensive back off waivers on Tuesday, according to NFL.com.
Williams was suspended for two weeks by the Browns after skipping Cleveland’s preseason tilt against the Green Bay Packers on Aug. 12. He reportedly told the Browns that his ankle wasn’t fit to play in the contest. The team announced that they didn’t know his ankle was bothering him until a day after the game, per Cleveland.com.
The bizarre situation is now over.
If healthy, Williams could immediately contribute at slot corner for the Bears. He spent the last two seasons as Cleveland’s top nickelback compiling 77 tackles and 10 passes defended.
