Washington Signs Tight End D.J. Williams

Washington has signed free agent tight end D.J. Williams, reports Mike Jones of the Washington Post (via Twitter). Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.

The Packers took Williams in the fifth round of the 2011 draft and parted ways with him after the 2012 season. The ex-Arkansas Razorback has since been a member of the Jaguars, Patriots and Buccaneers organizations. He has three career starts and just nine catches, the last of which came in 2012.

Williams’ less-than-decorated resume aside, Washington was in desperate need of tight end depth after losing Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen to season-ending injuries over the last week. Washington worked out Williams and two other tight ends, Ernest Brun and Jean Sifrin, on Sunday. The club agreed to a deal with Brun before inking Williams, though Jones tweeted that it chose not to sign Sifrin.
