PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Eagles released cornerback Cary Williams.

Williams was signed by the Eagles as a free agent in 2013 and started all 32 games over the last two seasons. He had five interceptions.

Williams was a seventh-round draft round pick of the Tennessee Titans, where he played for parts of two seasons before joining the Baltimore Ravens. He started 28 games over four seasons and was part of the Super Bowl championship team in 2013. He has nine career interceptions, one touchdown and 305 tackles.

With Bradley Fletcher set to become a free agent, the Eagles will have three cornerbacks remaining on the roster: Brandon Boykin, Nolan Carroll II and Jaylen Watkins.

With Tuesday's release, the Eagles will save about $6.5 million against the salary cap.
