Falcons Release Veteran RB

The Atlanta Falcons reportedly released their veteran running back Damien Williams, but remains healthy if a team decides to pick him up through waivers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Williams, who is known for his game-clinching touchdown that helped secure Super Bowl LIV for the Kansas City Chiefs, signed with the Falcons this past offseason on a one-year deal. He unfortunately suffered a rib injury Week 1 that put him on Atlanta's IR and has not played a snap since. 

The former undrafted free agent in 2014 spent his first four seasons with the Miami Dolphins, then two seasons with the Chiefs, and his last two campaigns were split with the Bears/Falcons. 

Williams in his eight year career thus far has rushed 336 times for 1397 yards, and 14 touchdowns.
