This is the third NFL team for Williams, the 10th pick in the 2005 draft by Detroit. The Lions traded Williams to Oakland earlier this season, but the Raiders released him Oct. 30, two days after Williams dropped a late third-down pass in a loss to Tennessee.
The Titans are familiar with Williams because of offensive coordinator Norm Chow, who coached him at Southern California.
The Titans have needed help at receiver all season. They lost out to New England in a free agency chase for Donte' Stallworth, and they had at least four dropped passes in Monday night's 34-20 loss to Denver.
The Titans had two roster spots open after releasing linebacker LeVar Woods last week, and rookie running back Chris Henry started serving his four game suspension Wednesday.
The Titans signed Chris Barclay off Cleveland's practice squad for the final roster spot.
