Ravens sign 37-year-old CB Williams for backfield depth

NFL Dallas

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.
