Kevin Ray Williams (born January 25, 1971 in Dallas, Texas) is a former American football wide receiver in the National Football League who played for the Dallas Cowboys, the Arizona Cardinals, the Buffalo Bills, and the San Francisco 49ers.

Early years

Williams attended Roosevelt High School in Dallas and played college football at the University of Miami, where was the fastest player in some of college football most talented teams.

In 1991 he was the Big East special teams player of the year and received first-team All-Big East honors, after setting the conference record with 3 punts returned for touchdowns. In 1992 injuries made him slip to second-team All-Big East.

He was part of the Hurricane's 1991 National Championship team.

Professional career

Dallas Cowboys

Williams was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the 2nd round of the 1993 NFL Draft. His best moment as a rookie came in the infamous Thanksgiving game against the Miami Dolphins, where he scored all of the team's points (except the conversions).[1]

His speed and return abilities were always valued during his time with the Cowboys, but after the departure of Alvin Harper in 1995, he received the opportunity as the starting wide receiver opposite to Michael Irvin. That season against the Arizona Cardinals he had the sixth best single game receiving total in franchise history with 203 yards.

In 1996 a foot injury suffered in a 10-7 loss against the Buffalo Bills, limited him to only 10 games and by the next year he decided to leave the team via free agency.

Arizona Cardinals

In 1997 he signed as a free agent with the Arizona Cardinals.

Buffalo Bills

In 1998 he signed as a free agent with the Buffalo Bills, where he played for 2 seasons.

San Francisco 49ers

Williams finished his 8 year career with the 49ers in 2000, finishing with 178 receptions for 2,314 yards and 7 touchdowns, 7,309 kickoff return yards with 1 touchdown and 2,295 yards and 3 touchdowns on punt returns. He gained a total of 12,085 all purpose yards.
