The Houston Texans are hosting free agent safety Aaron Williams prior to the start of mandatory mini-camp. Williams is being checked on the Texans to potentially help out a young secondary that needs a veteran presence.
Williams was selected in the 2nd round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills out of the University of Texas. Entering his third season, Williams was moved to safety after playing cornerback the first two years with the Bills secondary. His play at safety landed him a four-year extension worth $26 million keeping him as a vital part of the defense.
In 2015, Williams suffered a neck injury attempting a tackle against the New England Patriots which ultimately ended his season. Williams only appeared in 3 games that season and in 2016 he sustained another next injury that allowed him to only play in 7 games.
For his career Williams has 257 total tackles with 7 interceptions and 36 pass deflections.
