Source: Chargers and veteran ILB Agree to Deal

Veteran ILB Demorrio Williams will continue his career in the AFC West.

Williams and the San Diego Chargers have agreed on a one-year contract, a source told

Williams, who was released by the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this week, started 22 games during his four-year tenure with the team.

The veteran defender was originally selected in the fourth round of the 2004 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons. Williams primarily lined up at WLB for the Falcons, but moved inside after joining the Chiefs.

During his four seasons with the Falcons, Williams started 43 games while appearing in 64.

In his eight seasons of play, Williams, 31, has only missed four games.

Williams should get a chance to compete for a starting job with the Chargers at ILB.
