Bit of a fan favorite as a low piece is back for the Buffalo Bills.
On Tuesday, the bills (10-6) announced that the team has re-signed Antonio Williams to their practice squad. He recently came out just before the new year.
In a corresponding move, the wide receiver Austin Proehl was released from the taxi unit.
Williams has been part of the exhibition squad since September, but did not play any games in 2021. He had a reserve seat behind Devin Singletary, Zack Moss and Matt Breida.
Taiwan Jones is also listed as a running back on Buffalo’s roster, but he is primarily a special team player.
Bringing Williams back could be a profound move to potentially avoid having to rely on Jones in such a long-term scenario.
In addition, the Buffalo practice squad already has two wideouts in Isaiah Hodgins and Tanner Gentry.
Last season, Williams played in the Buffalo season finale. This year comes this coming Sunday against the New York Jets.
However, in 2021 Buffalo will play to win their final to secure the AFC East title.
Therefore, it is unlikely that Williams or any other back-ups will see game time as they did a year ago in the final game of the regular season.
