Miami Dolphins Add Speedy Undrafted Wideout Chris Williams

Chris J. NelsonSenior Writer IApril 27, 2009

The Dolphins have added their fifth undrafted rookie free agent, this time signing New Mexico State wide receiver Chris Williams to a contract.

William (5-7, 170) appeared in 42 games for the Aggies and caught 246 passes for 3,265 yards and 32 touchdowns. He also amassed 1,033 kick return yards, 297 punt return yards and three return touchdowns.

Given his size, speed (mid-4.3 range in the 40-yard dash) and the ten wideouts ahead of him on the depth chart, it's safe to say Williams will be attempting to make the team as a returner. Think of him as this year's Jayson Foster.
