And when the Bears signed journeyman Jonathan Scott last month, Williams' days appeared to be numbered.||||||| Williams never lived up to his billing after being taken out of Vanderbilt with the 14th overall pick in 2008. He started 20 games at left guard, 11 at right tackle and seven at left tackle but never could settle into a position thanks to injuries and poor play.
