SANTA CLARA (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have signed free agent cornerback K’Waun Williams to a one-year deal.
The team announced the deal on Wednesday in the first roster addition since the hiring of new general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan.
Williams originally signed with Cleveland as an undrafted free agent in 2014. He spent two years with the Browns before being waived last August. Williams was claimed off waivers by the Bears but was cut two days later and did not play in 2016.
Williams has played 26 career games with 10 starts. He has 69 tackles, 10 passes defensed, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two sacks.
