Cardinals agree to terms with DB Tramon Williams

July 31, 2017

The Arizona Cardinals added some much-needed depth to their secondary Sunday night by signing free-agent cornerback Tramon Williams to a one-year deal.

The 34-year-old Williams has 10 years of NFL experience. He played for the Green Bay Packers from 2007-14 before spending the last two seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He won Super Bowl XLV as a member of the Packers and was a 2010 Pro Bowl selection.

Williams has 30 career interceptions, tied for the fifth-most among active players. He recorded six solo tackles in the Packers’ 51-45 overtime playoff loss to the Cardinals in the 2009 season.

Williams has at least one interception in all 10 of his NFL seasons, tying the Washington Redskins’ DeAngelo Hall for the second-longest active NFL streak. Minnesota Vikings cornerback Terence Newman leads the NFL with 14 straight seasons with an interception.

Williams offers upside to the Cardinals, though, because he won’t be asked to cover in such situations. The 11-year veteran will instead come on board to provide depth, experience, veteran leadership and potential versatility. Exploring time at safety isn’t out of the realm of possibility, though Arizona is essentially two-deep at the position with Antoine Bethea and Tyvon Branch at strong safety, and Tyrann Mathieu and rookie Budda Baker behind him at free safety.
