Arizona Cardinals claim cornerback Trevor Williams, release punter Ryan Winslow

Los Angeles Chargers v Cleveland Browns

The Arizona Cardinals continue to search for the right combination on defense.

This week, they have claimed veteran cornerback Trevor Williams, who was recently released by the Los Angeles Chargers.

From the team:

Williams (5-11, 191) played 37 games (27 starts) the past three seasons with the Chargers and had 100 tackles (86 solo), three interceptions, 23 passes defensed, one fumble recovery and four tackles for loss. He originally joined the Chargers as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2016 out of Penn State. The 26-year old Williams had his best season in 2017 when he set career highs with 54 tackles and two interceptions in 16 games (15 starts). He was released from the Chargers injured reserve list yesterday.

This sounds like a move in case Tramaine Brock cannot go this weekend, but could also potentially be a move in case the team is ready to move on from Chris Jones, who has seen his snaps fall the past two weeks.

In addition, the team released punter Ryan Winslow, signalling that Andy Lee will be back this week.

Finally, the team brought back running back Justin Davis to the practice squad.

Davis (6-1, 199) spent the first four weeks of the season on Arizona’s practice squad after originally signing on September 3. He played 15 games the past two seasons (2017-18) with the Rams and had three carries for 20 yards. The 23-year old Davis played 11 games last year for the Rams and four games as a rookie in 2017 after originally joining the team as an undrafted rookie free agent from USC.

Welcome to the team Trevor and good luck to Ryan.
