Chiefs Release Veteran LB Demorrio Williams

The Chiefs have released veteran linebacker Demorrio Williams.

Signed to a five-year, $10.5 million contract in 2008, Williams started 22 of his 60 games with the Chiefs, totaling 216 tackles, one sack and eight passes defensed.

Williams led the Chiefs with 117 tackles in 2009, but has just 37 tackles in 28 games in a reserve role the last two seasons. Williams, 31, was scheduled to earn $1.5 million in base salary with a $200,000 roster bonus and $50,000 workout bonus in 2012. His release clears $1.75 million in cap space.
