Chris Williams already has his bounce back.

Williams had surgery in late August to repair a torn Achilles suffered during Hamilton’s Week 11 victory over Edmonton. Less than six months later, Williams is already grabbing a 10-foot rim.

Williams stayed with the Ticats for the rest of the 2018 season.

Williams was acquired by the Ticats in the blockbuster Johnny Manziel trade. He played in four games making 10 catches for 114 yards for Hamilton last season. The speedster became a free agent on February 12, but as long as the rehab stays steady teams looking for a proven vertical threat could add Williams. He battled back from a torn ACL he suffered in 2016.

Williams has four 1,000-yard seasons on his resume for a total of 381 receptions for 5,634 and 34 touchdowns in his six-year CFL career. He was named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Rookie in 2011, named a CFL all-star in 2012 and won a Grey Cup with the Ottawa Redblacks in 2016.

The 31-year-old clearly has some pop – or hops – left.
