(Burbank) – Former Burbank star running back James “Boobie” Williams was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent. Williams played at Washington State after graduating from Burbank and then declared for the NFL draft after his junior year last season.

Although he was undrafted, he was signed by Kansas City following the draft. Last year the versatile Williams rushed for 560 yards and 12 touchdowns and also caught 83 passes for 613 yards and four scores.

    If you read some of the comments on JP Andrade you’d know that I was obviously being sarcastic. But I never claimed NOT to be an idiot so I’ll give you that.
    @Big Brother
    I tried my best to use a sarcasm font.

    Of course this is a HUGE deal. Congratulations to the young man and his family.

    @FBFan you have no clue what you are talking about
    all of these guys were in the same boat as Williams
    Wes Walker, Chris Harris, Nate Newton, Priest Holmes, James Harrison, Rod Smith, Antonio Gates, Tony Romo, John Randle, Warren Moon, Kurt Warner, and there are about 500 other players that are just roll players. He will have an opportunity to make a squad.

    This is false! It is just a preferred signee- walkon without draft benefits. It’s not like it’s actual big time nfl football. He’d be better off in the arena league 😉

    This has the potential to be a HUGE bargain for the Chiefs, and I certainly wish Williams the best as he steps into the league.
