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.
