Broncos sign WR Nick Williams


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos signed wide receiver Nick Williams on Friday, the team announced.

Denver waived defensive lineman Deyon Sizer in a corresponding roster move.

Williams, a 5-foot-10, 184-pound player, entered the league in 2013.

He has recorded 30 career receptions for 280 yards and two touchdowns, but he has also served as both a kick returner and punt returner.

Williams averaged 20.9 yards per kick return in 2013, his sole season in that role. In 2018, he returned four punts for an average of 11.8 yards per return. His longest return went for 47 yards.

Williams appeared in two games for the Titans and two games for the Rams in 2018. Prior to the 2018 season, he spent portions of the 2015-17 seasons on the Falcons' active roster. Broncos Offensive Coordinator Rich Scangarello was in Atlanta with Williams in 2015, when the receiver recorded career highs in receptions and receiving yards.

Williams will wear No. 86 with the Broncos.
