Cornerback Cary Williams has signed with the Seahawks Tuesday when free agency begins, according to the Baltimore Sun. Williams, who was cut by the Eagles this offseason, was being pursued by the Titans, Jets, Ravens and Seahawks, according to the report. Williams, who previously played for Tennessee and Baltimore, totaled 60 tackles in 2014 with two interceptions and nine passes defended.
The Titans are interested in upgrading their entire defense, it looks like. According to The Tennessean, the Titans have expressed interest in bringing in free agents safety Devin McCourty, outside linebacker Jason Worilds and cornerback Cary Williams. McCourty is the top free agent safety in this year's group, though the Eagles and Giants are looking like the top bidders for his services. Worilds is comfortable with associate head coach Dick LeBeau as he played under him in Pittsburgh. He would likely mesh well into what the Titans are looking to do on that side of the ball. Williams has familiarity with the Titans as they selected him in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL draft. Williams is also reportedly receiving interest from the Seahawks, Jets and Ravens. The Titans are also hopeful of bringing back outside linebacker Derrick Morgan with a new deal.
Free-agent cornerback Cary Williams is set to visit the Seahawks on Thursday, a source told The Baltimore Sun. Along with the Seahawks, the Jets and Titans also want to bring Williams in for a visit, weather permitting, a source told ESPN. The Steelers and Ravens have also expressed interest in the free agent. Williams was recently released by the Eagles after starting 32 games over the last two seasons for the team. In 2014, he totaled 60 tackles and two interceptions.
The Eagles released cornerback Cary Williams, who started all 32 games during his two-year tenure in Philly. Williams recorded 127 tackles, five interceptions and 24 passes defensed since joining the Eagles. Williams made headlines during the season for questioning Eagles Coach Chip Kelly's conditioning regimen. "I'm saying [practicing every day] impacted a lot of people," Williams said after a hard-fought 37-34 win over the Redskins in September. "A lot of people, but I'm just the only one man enough to get up here and say anything about it, talk to y'all as a man and discuss an issue that, obviously, in my opinion, is an issue in our starts [to games]. "But again, I'm just employee 26, and whatever they deem necessary to get us ready for Sunday is whatever it is. If we have to find energy from outside sources to start games quick, then we've got to do it. But right now, the way we're doing it, it's not conducive to success." Williams, 30, was scheduled to make $6.5 million this season with a cap hit of $8.1 million.
Among the six players on the injury report for the Eagles defense in Week 3 against Washington, only defensive back Earl Wolff (knee) was forced to sit out. Defensive lineman Fletcher Cox (back) is in uniform, along with defensive backs Cary Williams (hamstring), Jaylen Watkins (hamstring), Malcolm Jenkins (shoulder) and Nolan Carroll (elbow).
