Williams was a second round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, selected by the Baltimore Ravens. He played for four seasons there before signing with the Arizona Cardinals. In 2019, just sixth months after being signed by the Cardinals, he signed a two-year extension.
In his six years in the NFL, he has a total of 86 receptions for 801 yards and five touchdowns. He was on pace for a career year in 2021, earning almost half of his career high in yardage in just 4.5 games before leaving with the knee injury.
