Chargers, Williams Agree to Terms

August 7, 1998

SAN DIEGO (AP) _ Rookie defensive end Jamal Williams, who held out the first 12 days of training camp, agreed to a six-year contract with the San Diego Chargers on Thursday.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Williams is the last Chargers rookie to agree to terms.

The 6-foot-3, 305-pounder was drafted by the Chargers in the second round of the 1998 NFL supplemental draft out of Oklahoma State. The Chargers gave up their 1999 second-round draft choice to select him.

Meanwhile, offensive guard-tackle Tony Berti underwent surgery to remove a bone spur from his left shoulder. Berti, who started all 16 games at right tackle in 1997, is expected to be sidelined for three weeks.
