Kevin Williams Took Less Money to Become a Seahawk

He’s a Seahawk now.

Seattle officially signed veteran defensive tackle Kevin Williams, but now it’s being said that he took less money to come to the Hawks over the Minnesota Vikings and the New England Patriots.

Although the Vikings, his former team, tried to get him to stay with them, at the last minute he officially decided to come to someone he thought had more of a chance to win another championship soon.

“I just think there were better pieces in place in Seattle. The familiarity with being in Minnesota was there, but a chance to (not) know if they’re going to win 10 games or three games (played into it). I wish them luck, but there’s no certainty there, and you have a proven quarterback in those two teams (Seattle and New England),” he said.

Williams headed to Seattle on Monday to sign his contract and participate in the team’s minicamp. He hopes to stay in Seattle longer than Antoine Winfield did. Winfield was cut by the team at the end of training camp last August.

Williams will be turning 34 this year and he has yet to win a championship. He really wants to impress the coaches so he can stay on the team and show what he has to offer. He really wants to be receiving a ring soon.

“All I can do is the best I can,” Williams said. “Hopefully, that’s enough to secure a roster spot.”

Welcome to the team Kevin! Glad to have you!
