Bears sign FB Eddie Williams

Fullback Eddie Williams has signed a one-year contract with the
Chicago Bears.

Drafted in the seventh round by Washington last year, he spent
most of the season on the Redskins’ practice squad before being
elevated to the active roster Nov. 2. He was inactive for three
games before being placed on injured reserve with a broken leg in
late November.

The 6-foot-1, 249-pound Williams caught 100 passes for 1,205
yards and 11 touchdowns in four seasons at Idaho, while carrying 19
times for 195 yards and three TDs.
