Season over for ex-Seahawk Williams

Everything seemed pretty bright for Stephen Williams in the preseason when he led the entire NFL — nevermind just the Seahawks — in receiving yards with 216.

But in simply the latest illustration that what you see in the preseason doesn’t always carry over to the regular season, Williams was unable to duplicate that success once the games began to count for real.

Williams played in the first four games for Seattle, but was targeted only twice, including once in the opener against Carolina on a deep ball that was both a little overthrown and one Williams maybe could have had. He didn’t catch either pass, and after the Houston game was released when Seattle needed a spot on the active roster for Bruce Irvin.

He was picked up by Jacksonville, but played in just two games without making a catch and today was placed on injured reserve, apparently with an Achilles injury.

That ends his season, having played six games for two teams without a catch.
