The Seattle Seahawks signed free agent defensive tackle Kevin Williams and undrafted running back Demitrius Bronson and released quarterback Keith Price and defensive end Kenneth Boatright, the team announced Monday.
Williams, who played the last 11 years with the Minnesota Vikings and has been voted to six Pro Bowls, agreed to terms last week but did not sign his deal until Monday.
ESPN.com reported Williams' one-year deal is worth in excess of $2 million, and that he turned down more money with the New England Patriots to come to Seattle.
Williams was the ninth pick overall by the Vikings in the 2003 NFL Draft and recorded 10.5 sacks as a rookie. He followed that with 11.5 sacks in 2004 and also had 8.5 sacks in 2008. He was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2004 and 2006-10, adding All-Pro honors in 2004 and 2006-09. He was also named the NFL All-Decade team for the 2000s.
Williams has started all 171 games played in his career and recorded 463 tackles (331 solo), 60 sacks, five interceptions, 63 passes defensed, two touchdowns, seven forced fumbles and 13 fumble recoveries.
Bronson began his career at the University of Washington before transferring to Eastern Washington. He finished with 600 career rushing yards and 14 touchdowns, and caught eight career passes for 51 yards.
Price, the starting quarterback at Washington the last three years, was one of the first undrafted free agents the Seahawks signed following the 2014 NFL Draft last May.
Boatright, a graduate of Southern Illinois, signed with Seattle in April 2013, but sat out most of last season with an injury.
