The Seattle Seahawks announced this afternoon they have officially signed free agent defensive tackle Kevin Williams and undrafted free agent Demitrius Bronson and have released free agent quarterback Keith Price and defensive end Kenneth Boatright.
The moves keep Seattle at the 90-player roster limit heading into a mandatory three-day mini-camp beginning Tuesday.
Williams, who played the last 11 years with the Vikings and has been voted to six Pro Bowls, agreed to terms last week but did not sign his deal until today. He is expected to compete for time at both tackle spots. He is reported to have signed a one-year deal worth in excess of $2 million, with ESPN.com reporting over the weekend that he turned down more money with the Patriots to come to Seattle.
Bronson, a Kentwood High grad who spent two years at Washington before completing his career at Eastern Washington, tried out for the team during its rookie mini-camp last month. He adds depth at the running back spot with it remaining unclear if Marshawn Lynch will participate in mini-camp.
Price, the starting QB at UW the last three years, was one of the first undrafted free agents the Seahawks signed following the 2014 NFL Draft last May. But he was one of five QBs on Seattle’s roster and got few snaps during team sessions during the OTAs. Seattle now has four QBs on its roster — Russell Wilson, Tarvaris Jackson, Terrelle Pryor and B.J. Daniels.
Boatright, a graduate of Southern Illinois, signed with Seattle in April, 2013, but sat out most of last season with an injury.
