The Tampa Bay Storm has acquired defensive back Nick Williams, announced Storm Vice President of Football Operations Jeff Gooch.
“Nick is a hard worker and fits the mold of the type of player we look for in a defensive back,” said Gooch. “We look forward to seeing him compete and welcome his addition to the team.”

Williams finished his senior season at North Alabama, having appeared in 13 games for the Lions and recording 62 tackles, 5.0 tackles for loss, two interceptions and two pass breakups.
Williams began his professional career in 2014 with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.
