Ravens sign 37-year-old CB Williams for backfield depth
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens fortified their defensive backfield by signing free agent cornerback Tramon Williams, who hasn’t played since last season.
The 37-year-old Williams played in all 16 games with Green Bay a year ago. He has 13 seasons of NFL experience, most of them with the Packers.
His addition to Baltimore’s 53-man roster Tuesday coincided with cornerback Khalil Dorsey being placed on injured reserve with a dislocated shoulder.
Williams broke into the NFL in 2007 with Green Bay. He played there for eight years before a two-year stint with Cleveland, followed by one season with Arizona in 2017 before a return to the Packers for two more years.
Williams made the Pro Bowl in 2010 after a season in which he had a career-high six interceptions.
Baltimore added Williams following a week in which cornerback Marlon Humphrey was sidelined after testing positive for COVID-19.
