49ers Signing Former Browns CB K’Waun Williams To One-Year Deal


Ian Rapoport reports that the 49ers are signing former Browns CB K’Waun Williams to a one-year contract.

Earlier on Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reported that the 49ers are one of the four reported teams that made an offer to Williamsso it appears the two sides were able to come to an agreement.

The Dolphins and Jets also reportedly showed interest in Williams and extended offers to his representation.

Williams drew a large amount of interest in recent weeks and also had scheduled meetings with the Lions and Vikings. The Saints were also mentioned as a team that could have interest in him.

Williams, 25, wound up signing on with the Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh back in 2014. He was in the final year of his three-year, $1.53 million contract when the Browns cut him loose during the preseason as they trimmed their roster down to 75 players.

Williams was later claimed off of waivers by the Bears, but he failed a physical due to his ankle injury and was cut loose a day later.

Williams filed a grievance against the Browns for how things played out this summer.

In 2015, Williams appeared in 13 games and recorded 39 tackles, one sack, three forced fumbles, two recoveries and two pass defenses.
