NFL Career

After trading Randy Moss to Oakland, The Minnesota Vikings were in deep need of a receiver, picking  Williamson with the 7th overall in the 2005 NFL Draft, using the pick acquired from trading Moss to Oakland.  

In the 2006−2007 off-season, Moss claimed his hand-eye coordination was poor due to his depth perception which he gave the reason for his 11 dropped balls, which tied for second in the NFL. Additionally, Vikings' 2007 season was also difficult for Williamson, who finished with 240 yards and 1 touchdown. 

After the 2007 season, Williamson was traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a 6th round pick (Jaymar Johnson). The Jaguars released Williamson on September 4, 2010.
