Cardinals awarded waiver claim on LB Trevardo Williams

On Saturday, the Arizona Cardinals announced the addition of linebacker Trevardo Williams, who was claimed off of waivers from the Houston Texans.

Williams, 23, was drafted in the fourth-round by the Houston Texans in the 2013 NFL Draft out of the University of Connecticut, but spent his rookie season on the injured reserve with a knee injury. The 6-foot-1, 237-pound linebacker was given All-Big East first-team honors, playing 11 of 12 games that season at defensive end, recording 43 tackles and 11.5 sacks.

The Cardinals released cornerback Todd Washington in a corresponding move, making room on the roster for Williams.
