Eagles release CB Cary Williams

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Philadelphia Eagles released cornerback Cary Williams on Tuesday.

Williams, 30, was due to count for more than $8 million against the salary cap next season, which would have been the final year of a deal he signed during the 2013 offseason.

He started all 32 games in his two seasons with the Eagles, registering five interceptions.

A seventh-round pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2008, Williams earned a starting role with the Baltimore Ravens in 2011. He posted four interceptions in 2012, as the Ravens won the Super Bowl.
