Former Steelers Tackle Cut by UFL Team



Steelers OT Jarrid Williams

Former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Jarrid Williams has been released by the San Antonio Brahmas of the UFL, the league announced.

Williams, 26, comes in at 6-foot-6, 310 pounds out of Miami, Florida. He spent his last two college years in 2020 and 2021 with the Hurricanes. Before that, Williams transferred in from Houston. Since coming into the league after the 2022 NFL Draft as an undrafted free agent, Williams joined the Eagles after the draft. He was released two times before joining the team’s practice squad.

Williams measured with plus 35-inch arms at Miami pro day, following the trend of tackles that join Pittsburgh with elite length. It seems to be one principle that Omar Khan and Andy Weidl are honing in on during their scouting process for players.

Once on there, Williams would suffer an injury that would cause him to be released once again. Then, he would sign with the Detroit Lions practice squad to end the season. However, Williams ended up signing a futures contract with the Eagles before being released in May, which led him to the Steelers. Joining the team in early June, Williams is now gone a little bit over a month into his tenure.

Williams was cut by the Steelers after the signed Kwon Alexander in training camp. He then caught on with the Minnesota Vikings briefly before being released. Now, Williams does not have an obvious home in the UFL, either.
