Broken Ankle Marks the End for Titans WR Williams in Tennessee


In one of the surprising moves of the Titans roster cuts on Saturday, the team decided that the injuries to WR Roydell Willams were not enough to keep him around, this despite a career high 55 catches last season.  He shared the team led in catches with Justin Gage, but a broken ankle just a few days before the teams playoff game in San Diego ultimately sealed his fate.

He had 719 yards receiving, and you know that he won’t be on the open market for long.  He’s the best WR out there on the open market, and with such high-profile teams like Dallas needing pass catchers, he will be on a roster somewhere this season. The Titans had drafted Williams in the fourth round of the 2005 draft.

As for the Titans outlook at WR, the team signed Gage to an extension in February, and brought back veteran receiver Justin McCareins in March, a two will be their starters in the opener against Jacksonville at LP Field on Sunday.  The team is eyeing Brandon Jones, who had a groin injury last year, as the slot receiver.
