Seahawks Release Reggie Williams, Sign Three Draft Picks

The days in a Seahawk uniform for former Washington Husky standout Reggie Williams are over.

According to the team’s official Web site, Seattle released Williams Friday and wideout Victor James in order to make room on its roster for the addition of three newly signed rookies from April’s National Football League Draft.

The three signees include safety Kam Chancellor, cornerback Walter Thurmond and defensive end E.J. Wilson.  Chancellor, a product of Virginia Tech, was taken in the fifth round (133rd overall), while Thurmond and Wilson were both taken in the fourth, (111th and 127th overall, respectively).

Reggie Williams was signed during the offseason after a year away from the game.  Previously spending five seasons in Jacksonville, the former first-round selection compiled 189 total receptions for 2322 yards and 18 touchdowns as a pro.
