The Bears claimed linebacker Jabara Williams off waivers today from the Rams, and he will take the roster spot left by safety Chris Harris, after Harris was released today.
Williams, who is 6'2", 238 pounds, was a seventh round pick by the Rams in the 2011 NFL Draft, and played in two games for them this year. The rookie becomes the sixth linebacker on the Bears' roster, and is expected to be a contributor on special teams. It also sounds like he could be a nice find as a Tampa-two weak side linebacker for the future with his skill set.
In college at Stephen F. Austin, Williams had 411 tackles, seven sacks, and four interceptions. He was a two-time Southland Conference Player of the Year.
