During his five-year NFL career, wide receiver Mike Williams spent time with two teams located near Canada. Now he’ll actually be playing there. The CFL’s Toronto Argonauts announced that they’ve signed Williams, who spent five years in the NFL, including two seasons each with Seattle and Detroit.

The Lions made Williams the 10th overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, back when former Detroit general manager Matt Millen was stocking up on first-round wide receivers. Before Williams, the Lions had selected Charles Rogers with the second overall pick in 2003 and Roy Williams with the seventh overall pick in 2004.

After only catching 37 passes in two seasons with the Lions, Detroit traded Williams to the Raiders in 2007. Less than halfway through the season, Williams was cut by the Raiders and eventually signed by the Titans.
