Titans sign former USC star WR Mike Williams

Tennessee reached an agreement Thursday with wide receiver Mike Williams, reuniting him with one of his former coaches at USC, Norm Chow, and running back LenDale White.

Williams was scheduled to practice with the Titans on Thursday and could play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Titans signed him to the roster spot that was created when the NFL suspended running back Chris Henry for four games.

There was some talk that the Titans would shift Williams to tight end, but Tennessee believes that Williams ran well enough during his workout that he can make it and succeed at wide receiver.

Tennessee attempted to acquire Williams during the offseason in a draft-day trade with the Detroit Lions. But the Lions dealt Williams to the Raiders, who wound up releasing the wide receiver about a month ago.
