Kyle Williams acquired by Kansas City Chiefs

It didn't take long for Kyle Williams to land a new gig.

The fourth-year pro revealed his new employer just one day after he was waived by the San Francisco 49ers:

The Kansas City Star later confirmed through the player's agent that Williams will join a Chiefs receiving corps that includes Donnie Avery, Dexter McCluster and also the embattled Dwayne Bowe, who will start against the Denver Broncos on Sunday night despite being arrested on charges of speeding and marijuana possession over the weekend.

The surging Broncos and undefeated Chiefs are on a collision course for Sunday night, and Adam Schein senses a surprise. READ

Williams also reunites with pass-catcher A.J. Jenkins, who was shipped from San Francisco to Kansas City in August for the equally lackluster Jon Baldwin. Williams will assume the roster spot of fellow former 49ers receiver Chad Hall, who was released after the move.

Kansas City currently uses McCluster on punt returns and Quintin Demps to field kicks, but Williams gives the team added experience on both fronts. It's a depth move for a squad that doesn't push the ball downfield much with Alex Smith.

The Chiefs quarterback now has another of his old 49ers mates to throw to, and Williams has a new opportunity to prove he's worth keeping around.
