News: Chiefs Sign 7th Round Pick Javarris Williams

The Kansas City Chiefs announced today they have signed seventh round pick RB Javarris Williams out of Tennessee JavarrisWilliams1State.

The three year deal is worth $1.25 million according to a league source and includes a signing bonus around $65,000.

Williams was the first of the Chiefs’ three 7th round picks.  The others, TE Jake O’Connell and K Ryan Succop previously agreed to contract terms.  5th round OT Colin Brown of Missouri has also signed.

That leaves 1st round pick DE Tyson Jackson, 3rd round selection DE Alex Magee, 4th round pick CB Donald Washington and 6th round WR Quinten Lawrence still unsigned.

The rest of the picks should be signed shortly, with the team taking off for camp next weekend.  Three of the four deals getting done should be nothing but a formality.  Jackson is obviously the one exception and hopefully he can avoid a holdout.  C’mon Scott, lets get it done!
