  • Broncos' Sylvester Williams: Rises to active roster

    The Broncos signed Williams to the active roster Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Williams was cut last Friday and landed on the Broncos' practice squad, but following news that Purcell (foot) is out for the season, Williams was brought back to the active roster. McTelvin Agim is expected to start at nose tackle moving forward, but Williams should handle a decent workload with Purcell out of the picture.

  • Broncos' Sylvester Williams: Joins active roster

    Williams was promoted to the Broncos' active roster Saturday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

    Williams is being brought up to help provide depth on the defensive line. Starting nose tackle Mike Purcell (knee) is listed as questionable, so Williams could potentially get some run.

  • Chargers' Sylvester Williams: Joining Chargers

    Williams signed a contract with the Chargers on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Williams spent training camp with the Saints after signing in May, but he didn't end up making the season-opening roster. The veteran defensive tackle provides some much-needed depth with Justin Jones (shoulder) and Brandon Mebane (knee) battling injuries.

  • Saints' Sylvester Williams: Signs with Saints

    Williams signed a contract with the Saints on Monday, according to the team's official site.

    The 2013 first-round pick has failed to find consistency in the NFL, logging stints with the Broncos, Titans, Dolphins and Lions over the past six seasons. In 2018, he played in 14 games with four starts split between the Lions and Dolphins, logging 14 tackles (eight solo). He'll now compete for a depth role on the Saints' defensive line.

  • Dolphins' Sylvester Williams: Links up with Dolphins

    Williams signed a contract with the Dolphins on Wednesday, the team's official site reports.

    In need of some defensive line help, the Dolphins added a pair of veteran bodies Wednesday in the form of Williams and Ziggy Hood. The duo should provide some depth for a defensive front that just lost the services of Vincent Taylor (foot) for the remainder of the season.

  • Sylvester Williams: Released by Lions

    Williams was released by the Lions on Thursday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Williams joined the Lions in March and had been operating as a depth defensive tackle. He didn't see a single regular-season snap with Detroit through the first seven weeks of the year. The Lions traded for Damon Harrison this week, and Williams release created the necessary room for the addition of the latter. Williams will look to catch on with another team for the remainder of the season.

  • Lions' Sylvester Williams: Moving to Motown

    Williams signed a contract with the Lions on Wednesday.

    The Lions needed help at defensive tackle after failing to re-sign veteran Haloti Ngata, who was a critical piece of the Detroit run defense the last three years. Williams should be in the mix to compete for the starting job Ngata left behind, as Akeem Spence would seem to represent his only current competition on the roster. There's certainly a chance the Lions add more talent at defensive tackle through the draft or free agency.

  • Sylvester Williams: Released by Titans

    Williams was released by the Titans on Saturday, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

    Signed to a three-year, $16.5 million contract last offseason, Williams made 11 starts in 15 games for the Titans, recording 20 tackles without a sack on 349 defensive snaps. The 2013 first-round pick has never lived up to his draft status, finishing with 29 or fewer tackles and three or fewer sacks in each of his five NFL seasons, despite playing at least 13 games each year. Williams will look to catch on elsewhere as a rotational lineman for early downs, while Austin Johnson could take on more snaps in Tennessee.

  • Titans' Sylvester Williams: Limited at Tuesday's practice

    Williams was a limited participant at practice Tuesday due to the recent ankle surgery that he underwent, Terry McCormick of reports

    It doesn't appear that Williams will be hampered too much from the setback. The Titans expect him to be a full go in the coming days.
