Former FSU star to get a redemption shot with NFL team


Former Florida State running back Karlos Williams had been cut by the Buffalo Bills before the NFL season began. He was mostly cut because he had to serve a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and the cut saved the Bills some money rather than paying him for four games he wouldn't be eligible to play in anyway.

There were some reports that Williams was getting looks from other teams during his suspension, but it looks like he will go back to the team that drafted him in 2015.

In 2015 while playing for the Bills, Williams rushed for 517 yards and seven touchdowns on 93 carries. He also had 11 receptions for 96 yards and another two touchdowns. He should help the Bills get even deeper at the running back position with LeSean McCoy, Mike Gillislee and Jonathan Williams are all a part of the stable.
