FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – D. J. Williams finally has his packing strategy down. Now he'd like to master the Patriots playbook.
The tight end has been cut three times in just over three months. And he's with New England again after Rob Gronkowski was sidelined for the season.
It's Williams' latest destination in a year when he's been ready to travel to find work. He says he used to keep two bags packed but cut that down to one.
Williams spent two seasons with the Green Bay Packers before being cut Aug. 31. The Jacksonville Jaguars signed him the next day and released him Nov. 4. The Patriots claimed him Nov. 27, used him sparingly in one game then cut him Dec. 4 before re-signing him on Monday.
