The Seattle Seahawks officially announced the signing of former Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams on Monday.

Williams had reached an agreement with the team last week, choosing Seattle over similar offers from the Vikings, New England Patriots and New York Giants. He came to town Monday to sign his deal ahead of the team’s mandatory mini-camp beginning on Tuesday.

In addition, the team signed running back Demitrius Bronson and released quarterback Keith Price and defensive end Kenneth Boatright.

Bronson, an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Washington University, participated as a tryout player in the team’s rookie mini-camp last month. He was told by the team they planned to sign him, but he would have been unable to participate in OTAs due to his college class not yet graduating. With that no longer an issue, the team added him on Monday.

Price, signed as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Washington, was the fifth quarterback on the Seahawks roster. Boatright spent the entire 2013 season on injured reserve for Seattle after he injured his shoulder in training camp last August.
