The NFC West champion Seahawks have signed wide receiver Mike Williams to a three-year contract extension. The former USC star had a career year in 2010, catching 65 passes for 751 yards and two touchdowns. He caught a touchdown pass in Sunday night’s 16-6 victory over the Rams to give Seattle the division title.
Williams spent two years out of football following three subpar seasons with the Detroit Lions, Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Titans. The 7-9 Seahawks became the first sub-.500 division champion in league history. Seattle will host New Orleans, the NFC’s fifth seed, on Saturday at 4:30 p.m.
