MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Receiver Mike Williams, a former NFL first-round draft pick, was among three players released Friday by the Toronto Argonauts.

Also let go were running back Shawnbrey McNeal and offensive lineman Josh Prinsen, who played his college football at Queen's.

The six-foot-five, 241-pound Williams played at the University of Southern California and was selected 10th overall by the Detroit Lions in the 2005 NFL draft.

Williams, 29, spent five seasons in the league with Detroit, Oakland and Seattle, registering 127 catches for 1,526 yards and five TDs in 56 career games before being released by the Seahawks on July 13, 2012.
