BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- The Eagles announced the signing of defensive tackle Willie Williams. A 6-foot-4, 305-pound free agent, Williams was on the Rams' practice squad last year and was released earlier this week. St. Louis' signing of former Eagle Hollis Thomas led to Williams' release. The 24-year-old played his college football at Louisville.
With Trevor Laws injured the Eagles needed to bring in a d-tackle to shoulder some of the camp load. The team also isn't particularly deep at that position which is why they also worked out d-tackle Jesse Bowman today. Bowman, out of Mississippi State, was an undrafted rookie free agent.
