The Buccaneers claimed Williams off waivers Sunday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Williams will head to Tampa Bay after spending the first two years of his career with the Giants, where he logged 16 tackles (16 solo) and an interception in eight games played. The 26-year-old will now try to carve himself a depth role in the Buccaneers' secondary.

Williams was waived by the Giants on Saturday, Charlotte Carroll of The Athletic reports.
Williams spent time between the Giants' active roster and practice squad over the previous two seasons. Overall, he suited up for eight games total and recorded 15 solo tackles and one interception. The 26-year-old will now have to look for a chance elsewhere.
Williams posted 10 tackles (all solo) in the Giants' loss to the Eagles on Sunday.
New York rested most of its starters in the contest, giving players unaccustomed to a major role a chance in the spotlight. Williams was one of those players -- he entered Sunday having been a healthy scratch in each of the previous five weeks. The second-year cornerback responded with a career-high 10 stops, but he's unlikely to see much (if any) action next Sunday in New York's wild-card matchup versus Minnesota.
