Tuesday January 5th, 2016

Former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Cary Williams is signing with the Washington Redskins, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Williams started for Seattle in the team’s first 10 games of the season, before ultimately being released on Dec. 7. Before his release, Williams recorded 46 combined tackles and defended four passes in 2015.

The 31-year-old started his career with the Tennessee Titans in 2008 before spending four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, including the team’s Super Bowl-winning campaign in 2012–2013. He spent the last two years with the Philadelphia Eagles prior to signing a three-year, $18 million deal with the Seahawks last offseason, which included $7 million guaranteed.
