Saints sign DT Kevin Williams, waive TE Harold Spears


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/12/2015) The Saints were busy making personnel changes on Friday. The team signed defensive tackle Kevin Williams and waived rookie tight end Harold Spears, per The Times-Picayune.

Williams, a six-time Pro Bowler, signed a one-year deal with the Saints. He's played in 187 games over the last 12 years, and started eight games last season while recording 30 tackles and three sacks.

Spears caught 56 passes for 838 yards and four touchdowns as a senior at New Hampshire last year.


DT Kevin Williams admits visiting Saints, hopes to stay with Seahawks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Free agent defensive tackle Kevin Williams has confirmed that he visited the Saints, but he added his preference is to remain with the Seahawks.

The former Vikings standout and six-time Pro Bowler is hoping to play one more year in the NFL.

"I want to go back to Seattle, but this is business," he told the St. Paul Pioneer-Press. "They're still evaluating their roster. I guess there's not that many 12-year veterans that everyone wants. Everyone wants to go younger."

Williams, who played the 2014 season under a one-year, $2 million contract, added that he was not close to signing a contract with New Orleans.

"We talked. It was a good visit," he said. "I would fit in there. But I don't know what's going to happen."


Report: Saints brought in DT Kevin Williams for workout


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Kevin Williams worked out with the Saints this week, a league source has told ESPN, which is further reporting that it remains unclear if the two sides talked contract.

Williams was a standout with Minnesota before taking his talents last year to Seattle. He has 63 sacks in 12 seasons. He worked at the nose tackle spot for the Seahawks after Brandon Mebane went down.

New Orleans boasts little depth along the defensive line, which would explain their interest in Williams.


DT Kevin Williams could retire if Seahawks win


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/27/2015) Seahawks defensive tackle Kevin Williams did not rule out retiring if his team beats the Patriots in Super Bowl 49, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Williams, 34, is a six-time Pro Bowler and five-time First-Team All-Pro.

He played in every game this season, recording 22 tackles, three sacks and two pass breakups.


DT Kevin Williams' adjustment was key for Seahawks


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/21/2015) Seahawks defensive tackle Kevin Williams played his normal position, the three-technique, during the first nine games this season. When nose tackle Brandon Mebane suffered a season-ending hamstring injury, Williams moved over to replace him.

A six-time Pro Bowler at the three-technique, Williams started the final nine games, including playoffs, at nose tackle. He stabilized the defensive front and finished with 30 tackles and three sacks.

“It’s kind of unique how things happened,” Williams told the team's website. “You come in to help contribute wherever you can, you lose one of your starting players to injury and you’re moving to the nose. I’m just trying to do whatever I’m called upon to do and make plays.”

Williams is headed to his first Super Bowl after winning two playoff games during his 11-year tenure in Minnesota.

"It’s awesome, man,” Williams said. “I’m still kind of in a little disbelief, how we got it done and how the game unfolded. I was happy [Sunday night]. Now I’m back to concentrating on let’s get this other win now.”

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
