Chiefs add LB Williams, FB Hoyte
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI (TICKER) —The Kansas City Chiefs on Monday agreed to terms with linebacker Demorrio Williams on a five-year contract.
Financial terms were not disclosed, but the Kansas City Star reported that the deal is worth $16 million and contains $5.5 million in guaranteed money.
Williams, 27, played all four of his previous seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, starting three years at outside linebacker.
“Demorrio is an athletic young player who will help us both on defense and special teams,” Chiefs head coach Herm Edwards said. “He has played and started extensively, giving us a fourth experienced linebacker who fits our defensive scheme.”
The 6-1, 232-pound Williams has played in 64 career regular-season games - 43 starts - posting 356 tackles, 6 1/2 sacks and five interceptions.
The Chiefs made another move Monday, claiming fullback Oliver Hoyte off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys.
The 6-3, 252-pound Hoyte appeared in 22 games, including 15 starts in two seasons with Dallas. He was used primarily as a lead blocker for running backs Marion Barber and Julius Jones.
