Running back Williams Returns, Tight end Cieslak released

The Bills made their second roster move Thursday, and it was due in large part to their previous move earlier in the day. With Anthony Thomas being placed on injured reserve the team re-signed running back Shaud Williams.

Williams was originally one of four undrafted rookie free agents to make the club in 2004. He was on the team's 53-man roster for all of 2005 and 2006 before being released in the final cut to 53 this past summer.

In his Bills career Williams appeared in 25 games with 89 carries for 330 yards (3.7 avg.) and a pair of touchdowns. He also has 20 career receptions.

Since the Bills used Thomas' vacant roster spot earlier in the day to re-sign linebacker Leon Joe, Buffalo made room on the roster for Williams by releasing tight end Brad Cieslak.

Cieslak, who returned to the club on Nov. 14, was also a former undrafted free agent that re-signed with the team due to an injury shortage at tight end.
