Kasen Williams' performance at the Seattle Seahawks rookie minicamp last month was apparently good enough to garner a contract as an undrafted free agent.
The Seahawks officially announced on Friday that Williams, the former Huskies receiver, has signed with Seattle and joined the 90-man roster.
Williams, the former Skyline High School star, went undrafted following an underwhelming senior season at UW in which he caught just 20 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns. A severe leg injury ended his junior season after just eight games, and though Williams recovered in time for the start of the 2014 season, he didn't look like the same player who caught 142 passes for 1,726 yards during his first three seasons.
Still, the Seahawks brought the 6-foot-3, 217-pound receiver in for a tryout during rookie minicamp, and Williams flashed some of the ability that was mostly absent during his senior year at UW. Now he'll have the opportunity to play his way onto the 53-man roster -- or, more likely, earn a spot on the Seahawks practice squad.
