Seattle Reaches Deal With DT Kevin Williams
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks have added another big body to their defensive line after agreeing to terms with free agent Kevin Williams.
The Seahawks reached the agreement with Williams on Thursday as the team wrapped up its organized team activities. The Seahawks still have their mandatory three-day minicamp beginning Tuesday.
Williams will be entering his 12th season in the NFL, having spent his entire career until now with the Minnesota Vikings. Williams started 15 games last season for the Vikings with 3 ½ sacks and an interception.
Seattle found success last season with a deep rotation along the defensive line, an area that took a hit during free agency following the Seahawks' Super Bowl title.
Meanwhile, after the surgery and the rehabilitation, the setbacks and finally the triumph in the Super Bowl, a simple voluntary offseason workout has more meaning for Percy Harvin.
His appreciation is a byproduct of spending most of his first season with the Seattle Seahawks as a spectator.
Having Harvin fully healthy and ready to go from the start will be key for the Seahawks when they get to the start of training camp in late July. There are still three more days of workouts next week during minicamp to get through, but so far this offseason has been nothing but a success for Harvin in finally getting fully integrated into Seattle's offense.
Harvin's first season in Seattle was derailed by hip surgery.
