Buccaneers Sign CB Marcus Williams, Release OL Adam Gettis

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are signing CB Marcus Williams to a contract on Tuesday, according to his agency.

Williams, 27, originally signed on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of North Dakota State back in May of 2014. He was waived from the Texans’ practice squad a few weeks into the regular season before later signing on with the Jets.

The Jets waived him a few months into the 2017 season and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Texans.

After a brief stint with the Cardinals, Williams signed on with the Saints but was unfortunately among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

In 2017, Williams appeared in 15 games for the Jets and Texans and recorded 18 tackles, one interception and four pass defenses.

Gettis, 29, is a former fifth-round pick by the Redskins in the 2012 NFL Draft. He had stints with the Steelers and Raiders during the three years he spent with the Giants.

New York brought Gettis back on a futures contract last January only to cut him loose in November. The Buccaneers later signed him to a contract in the final few weeks of the season, but declined to tender him a restricted offer this offseason.

Even so, Gettis returned to the Buccaneers a few weeks later.

In 2016, Gettis appeared in three games for the Giants.
