Former Seattle Dragons running back Trey Williams was signed by the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. It’s technically his second stint up in the CFL as Williams spent three weeks on the Toronto Argonauts’ practice roster in 2017.
Williams’ most recent fray into professional football was in 2020 when he suited up for the XFL’s Seattle Dragons, accumulating 122 rushing yards and a touchdown as well as eight catches for 44 yards and a score. In 2019, he spent time with the San Antonio Commanders of the now defunct Alliance of American Football.
The Houston native signed with Washington in the National Football League as an undrafted free agent in 2015 and later that year spent time with the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins before joining the Colts. In two games with Indianapolis, he carried the ball twice for a total of 12 yards.
Williams attended training camp with the Pittsburgh Steelers and returned a punt 64 yards for a touchdown during a pre-season contest against Atlanta. After his stint on the Argos’ practice roster, he was added to the Cowboys’ practice squad and attended Dallas’ training camp in 2018.
In college, Williams played 36 games over three seasons at Texas A&M. He averaged 6.6 yards per carry with the Aggies, accumulating 1,343 yards and 18 touchdowns on 204 totes. He also returned 70 kickoffs for 1,684 yards and had 38 receptions for 330 yards and one score. He was named to the Southeastern Conference’s all-freshman team in 2012 after finishing second on the team with 1,104 all-purpose yards.
