Williams was recently front-and-center in the public eye as he scored two touchdowns in the 4th quarter to help lead the Chiefs to a win in Super Bowl LIV. The Chiefs’ Super Bowl win capped their 12-4 season, second in the AFC behind only the Baltimore Ravens.
Damien Williams became the first-string running back for the Chiefs following the team parting ways with Kareem Hunt in 2018. Williams totaled seven touchdowns last season as well as amassing a career-high 711 yards from scrimmage.
