Chiefs Trade Williams to 49ers

September 22, 1999

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The Kansas City Chiefs traded cornerback Robert Williams to San Francisco for a draft choice in 2000.

The Chiefs also re-signed four-year veteran cornerback Juran Bolden to a two-year contract.

Williams, a second-year cornerback, was a fifth-round draft choice from North Carolina in 1998. He played in all 16 games last season, including one start. In his rookie season, he recorded 16 tackles and half a sack.

At 5-foot-10 and 182 pounds, Williams lacked the size coach Gunther Cunningham wants in his cornerbacks.

``It’s a good organization I’m going to and an opportunity to play more,″ Williams said of his mve to the 49ers. ``I think it will work out for the best.″

Bolden, 6-2 and 207 pounds, was in camp with Kansas City earlier this year. He spent last season with Carolina. In six games with the Panthers, Bolden had six tackles and recovered one fumble on a kickoff. He also played with Green Bay in 1998 after seeing action in the season’s first three games with Atlanta.

Bolden made a strong bid to make the Chiefs’ roster in training camp, but suffered an elbow injury in the last preseason game.
