Cary Williams to Sign with Seattle Seahawks

With starting cornerback Byron Maxwell headed to the Philadelphia Eagles and nickel corner Jeremy Lane sidelined due to arm and knee injuries, the Seattle Seahawks suddenly needed to strengthen what was their most talented position in 2014. On Monday, the team addressed depth issues in their secondary by attracting back cornerback Will Blackmon. Then on Tuesday, with the commencement of free agency, former Eagles starting cornerback Cary Williams agreed to a new contract with the Seahawks reportedly worth $18 million over three years. The deal will be official at 4pm ET on Tuesday.   

Williams had narrowed the search to four teams, the other options being the New York Jets, Tennessee Titans, and Baltimore Ravens, with the latter two being former teams. Ultimately, Seattle general manager John Schneider was able to ink the deal, first reported by Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun. Essentially, it means that Williams and Maxwell will be switching places, though Maxwell’s deal is valued at more than $3 million per year, over six seasons.   

Williams’s career highlight came as a member of the Super Bowl XLVII champion Ravens. In 2014, he had 60 total tackles and two interceptions.
