You can now officially scratch free agent cornerback Tramon Williams off of your Pittsburgh Steelers want list as the former Green Bay Packers defensive back has reached a three-year agreement with the Cleveland Browns, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Williams turned 32 on Monday so that’s a heck of a way to celebrate a birthday. He played nine seasons with the Packers after originally entering the league in 2004 with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent.
The Browns needed another cornerback after losing free agent Buster Skrine last week to the New York Jets. In addition to losing Skrine, the jury is still out on young cornerback Justin Gilbert, who the Browns drafted in the first round last year.
In addition to coming to terms with Williams on Monday, the Browns also signed veteran defensive tackle Randy Starks to a two-year deal worth close to $8 million. Starks was released last week by the Miami Dolphins. He was originally drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft out of Maryland and had been with the Dolphins since 2008.
