NEW YORK, New York — Super Bowl LIV champion Damien Williams informed the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday he will be opting out of the 2020 season.
“As an organization, we certainly understand and respect Damien’s choice, knowing it was made in the best interest of his family,” General Manager Brett Veach said. “He means a lot to our football team as a player and a person, and we’re going to miss having him around this season.”
Williams rushed for 104 yards in Super Bowl LIV, including a 38 yard dash as part of the game-sealing touchdown run. He also caught a touchdown pass earlier in the fourth quarter to give Kansas City the lead as part of a furious, 21-point fourth quarter, nearly winning Super Bowl MVP for his efforts.
