The Browns announced the signing of WR Demetrius Williams and the waiving of WR Yamon Figurs on Tuesday. The club also said it had waived RB James Davis and claimed RB Thomas Clayton off waivers from New England, moves reported by multiple media outlets Monday.
Williams, 27, played four seasons for Baltimore before being waived on Sept. 4. He has caught 63 passes for 1,008 yards and four TDs.
The way we see it
Figurs was signed as insurance last week with RS-WR Joshua Cribbs recovering from a concussion, but Cribbs was able to play in the Week Seven win at New Orleans. Williams (6-2, 202) showed potential at times in his Ravens career but struggled to stay healthy. He has good speed.
