The Seattle Seahawks have signed receiver Phil Bates, running back Derrick Coleman, defensive back Chandler Fenner, tight end Cooper Helfet, linebacker Kyle Knox, cornerback Ron Parker, linebacker Korey Toomer, defensive tackle Myles Wade, receiver Bryan Walters and receiver Stephen Williams to futures contracts, as the team starts to build the 2013 80-man roster for the upcoming year.
Williams is the only player that was not with Seattle at some point during the 2012 season. A product of the University of Toledo, at 6-5 and 208 pounds, Williams was an undrafted rookie free agent for the Cardinals in 2010.
Williams finished his college career as Toledo's all-time leader with 229 receptions and 3,102 career receiving yards, breaking records held by Lance Moore (2001-04), who’s currently with the New Orleans Saints.
Arizona waived/injured Williams at the end of training camp in August 2012 after he sustained an Achilles tendon injury.
