Seahawks Make Roster Moves

Published on September 14, 2011 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

The Seattle Seahawks have released tight end Dominique Byrd from the active roster and guard Brent Osborne from the practice squad, the team announced this afternoon. In their place, Seattle signed fullback Eddie Williams from the Cleveland Browns practice squad to the active roster and tight end Fendi Onobun to the practice squad.

Originally drafted by the Washington Redskins in the seventh-round (221st overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft, Williams spent the first seven weeks of the season on the Redskins practice squad before being elevated to the 53-man roster on November 2. He was inactive for three games before being placed on injured reserve on November 24. Waived by Washington on March 5, 2010, Williams was signed by Chicago on March 10 and spent the entire 2010 season on the Bears practice squad. He was with the Bears through training camp this season and signed with Cleveland on September 7.

A four-year letterman at the University of Idaho (2005-08), Williams recorded 100 receptions for 1,205 yards and 11 touchdowns as a wide receiver. He also amassed 195 rushing yards and three scores on 19 attempts. As a senior, he earned first-team All-Western Athletic Conference honors after leading the team in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown receptions. A native of San Mateo, Calif., the 6-1, 242-pound Williams attended Aragon High School.

Onobun was the Rams sixth-round pick (170th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft and played in three games last season with two receptions for 15 yards.
