Bills RB Jonathan Williams will not be disciplined by NFL

He served only two of the 10 games.

Originally a fifth-round pick by the Bills in the 2016 NFL Draft, Williams carried the ball 27 times for 94 yards and one touchdown previous year in a reserve role.

The 2015 fifth-round pick out of Florida State was released from Buffalo ahead of the 2016 season for "performance based reasons".


The former Florida State product was released by the Bills after reportedly showing up to camp out of shape and being suspended by four games by the National Football League for violating the substance abuse policy.

Will Karlos Williams play another down in the NFL? He gained 517 yards on 93 carries and scored seven rushing touchdowns in addition to two receiving touchdowns.

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed Williams to a reserve/future contract in January, after he was suspended for 10 games in November.


He was released by the Bills last August, following his first suspension.

The NFL has penalized players in the past despite no criminal conviction. The running back showed up out of shape to minicamp and was suspended in July of 2016 for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. When he arrived on the campus of FSU and made the seamless transition from safety to running back during the 2013 title season, there was no stopping what Los was going to be capable of.
