Kevin Williams had been a member of the Minnesota Vikings for 11 seasons, never missing more than two games in any of those seasons.
He made six Pro Bowl appearances as a defensive tackle and recorded 463 tackles and 60 sacks while forcing seven fumbles and recovering 13 more in his time in Minnesota.
On Monday, the 33-year-old visited with the Seahawks to discuss his possible role on the league’s best defense.
It was originally reported that Williams also worked out for Seattle on Monday, but The Sports Xchange’s Howard Balzer tweeted that those reports were untrue.
If the Seahawks did pick up the free agent, he would play with Tony McDaniel, Brandon Mebane and Jordan Hill as the primary defensive tackles. Alongside defensive ends Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril, that defensive line would be scary.
Williams had a career-low 29 tackles last year and has not forced a fumble since 2011. He has, however, recorded at least one sack in every season he has been in the league.
