Pooka Williams Officially Changes His Number and Position Ahead of 2021 Season Opener

The rookie is no longer listed as a running back.

CINCINNATI — Pooka Williams didn't make the Bengals 53-man roster, but the undrafted free agent flashed enough potential to stick around on the practice squad. 

Williams played running back in college at Kansas and was listed as such throughout training camp, but that changed on Monday. The 22-year-old is now listed as a wide receiver. 

He worked with the wide-outs throughout camp. He also switched his number from 36 to 12. 

Williams is only 5-10, 174 pounds, so he had to switch positions to give himself a real chance at sticking in the NFL. He is one of 16 players on the Bengals' practice squad
