The Buffalo Bills signed defensive tackle DeShawn Williams to a one-year deal Thursday morning.

Williams, who spent last season with the Carolina Panthers, had 33 total tackles, seven quarterback hits and a sack in 2023. The 31-year-old spent three seasons in Denver prior to his time in Carolina and had a career-high 4.5 sacks in 2022 as a defensive end.

Williams signed with the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent in 2015 and appeared in 4 games in the 2016 season. He spent time on Denver, Miami and Indianapolis' practice squads before a brief stint in the Canadian Football League that was ultimately postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Williams played college football at Clemson, tallying 79 total tackles and four sacks in addition to a fumble recovery. The defensive tackle is from Central, South Carolina.
