CHICAGO - Arena Football League player and former Toronto Argonauts receiver Chandler Williams has died. He was 27.

The AFL said Sunday that Williams died while playing in a local flag football tournament in South Florida. The league did not release a cause of death.

The wide receiver was a seventh-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2007 out of Florida International. He got into NFL pre-season games in four seasons but never played in a regular-season game, also spending time with the Miami Dolphins, Atlanta Falcons and Kansas City Chiefs.

Williams had a brief stint with the Argonauts this past season.

In seven games, he caught four passes for 88 yards and added eight kickoff returns for 223 yards. Williams was released Oct. 4.

The CFL team issued a statement Sunday morning.
