The Los Angeles KISS announced that they have been assigned wide receiver LaQuan Williams, as they continue to gear up for the postseason, which is just a few weeks away. Williams is the second former NFL wide receiver to be added by the KISS in the last two weeks, as the team added former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Fred Williams last week.
Williams brings three years of NFL experience to the KISS, and head coach Omarr Smith is excited to add him for the stretch run. “Williams is an explosive receiver that has been in the NFL for three years, Smith said. “We are excited to see if he can help pick up the Arena game and help our offense down the stretch.”
The 6’0” 195 pound receiver is entering his rookie campaign in the AFL. Williams entered the NFL in 2011, when he signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent. For two seasons, Williams appeared in 23 games for Baltimore, recording four catches for 46 yards. Williams won Super Bowl XLVII with the Ravens in 2013. Williams played a big role on special teams, as he returned six kick returns for 109 yards, and he compiled nine kick-coverage tackles.
Williams played briefly for the New England Patriots in 2013, before rejoining the Ravens for the 2014 season. The Baltimore, Maryland native played collegiate football at the University of Maryland. Williams played four seasons with the Terrapins, and he caught 33 passes for 436 yards and three touchdowns in 38 games played. Williams will make his debut on Saturday night, when the KISS play the Cleveland Gladiators in LA’s final home game of the season.
