RENTON, Wash. (AP) - There was still a chance for Kevin Williams to return to Minnesota, the only place he knew in his NFL career. There was also a chance to join New England and play for the Patriots.
So why is Williams now wearing a Seattle Seahawks uniform when he potentially could have gotten more money elsewhere? Because he liked the chance to play in a rotation on Seattle's defensive line.
Williams was the latest addition to the Seahawks roster just before the start of this week's minicamp. After seeing their defensive line thinned by free agency and salary cap cuts following the Super Bowl title, the addition of Williams this late could be a major coup for the Seahawks.
Williams believes he can still contribute. And Seattle is getting him at a bargain of $1.5 million for 2014.
