Browns Release Veteran CB Tramon Williams

The Cleveland Browns announced Tuesday that they’ve released veteran CB Tramon Williams along with QB Josh McCown.

Reports from last year mentioned that the Browns attempted to trade Williams before the deadline but they were ultimately unsuccessful in lining up a trade partner.

Williams, 33, spent eight years in Green Bay before signing a three-year, $21 million contract that included $10 million guaranteed with the Browns last year. He was set to make a base salary of $5.7 million for the 2017 season to go along with a $1 million roster bonus.

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Williams will free up $6,925,000 in available cap space while creating $500,000 in dead money.

In 2016, Williams appeared in 12 games for the Browns and recorded 36 tackles, one interception and five pass defenses.
