Antonio Williams, 24, has been a victim of circumstance most of his football career. He began his college journey at Ohio State where he was buried behind the likes of J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber before transferring to North Carolina, only to be a third wheel behind Javonte Williams and Michael Carter.
Williams was signed by the Buffalo Bills as a UDFA in 2020 and found himself in another crowded running back room and spent most of his time on the practice squad.
He’ll have an opening here with the Giants, who are banking on the health of Saquon Barkley and free agent Matt Breida is basically a committee back.
Williams could become a valuable resource in the Giants’ backfield this year, coming from Buffalo where he played under Brian Daboll, so he knows the system.
