Seahawks to add fullback, former Vandal Eddie Williams

Posted by Danny O'Neil

The Seahawks are expected to sign fullback Eddie Williams, a former Idaho Vandal who was a member of the Browns practice squad in Week 1.

Williams' addition comes after fullback Michael Robinson suffered an ankle injury Sunday in San Francisco and was not expected to be available this week. With Robinson out, Seattle wanted a fullback capable of playing special teams.

Williams entered the NFL in 2009, a seventh-round draft pick by Washington. He was with the Chicago Bears during training camp.

To make room for Williams on the roster, Seattle is expected to let go of Dominique Byrd, the team's third tight end. Byrd was an extremely promising pass-catching tight end in training camp, but with Robinson expected back, Seattle felt a crunch on the roster.
