The Kansas City Chiefs have selected to pick up the option on RB Damien Williams. Williams is now expected to earn $2.3 million during the 2020-2021 season.
During the 2019-2020 regular season, Williams was forced to sit out for six games due to an injury. Following his return, he rushed for 498 yards on 111 carries and had 30 receptions for 213 yards. He also had 5 touchdowns.
In the Chiefs postseason run, Williams was a crucial part of the offense. He rushed for 196 yards on 46 carries with 4 rushing touchdowns, while also having 94 yards on 11 catches for 2 touchdowns. Williams was able to seal the deal in the Chiefs Super Bowl victory and made a great case for the Chiefs to bring him back.
Hopefully next season Williams will continue this production at a high level and prove that he was worth the pick up.
