Former Seahawks free agent cornerback Cary Williams has signed on with Washington for their playoffs run.

Williams, who signed a three-year deal worth up to $18 million during the offseason, was released from Seattle after appearing in ten games. He made about $7 million from the Seahawks for that short stint. The release didn't save Seattle anything toward the cap in 2015, but in 2016 they'll save $3.8M against the cap while eating a $2.3M dead money charge, per OverTheCap.com.

It looks like a depth move for Washington, who had a few injuries in their secondary in Sunday's season finale against the Cowboys. Cornerback Dashaun Phillips injured his neck and safety Kyshoen Jarrett sustained nerve damage to his arm. Jarrett is out for this week's wildcard matchup with the Packers and Phillips should play.
