The return of former Bills top-five pick Mike Williams to the NFL in Washington was a great story of a former draft “bust” making good after years away from the league.

His comeback story likely ended Saturday when the Redskins officially released him.

Williams started eight games in 2009, but missed all of last season in 2010 because of blood clots found near his heart. It appears that health issue will prevent him from continuing to play.
