Madieu Williams Joins Redskins

Williams played high school ball at DuVal in Lanham, Maryland and played his college football at both Towson and Maryland. He joins a safety battle that will also involve Reed Doughty, DeJon Gomes, Cedric Griffin, Brandon Meriweather, and others.

Dan Graziano touched on how Williams could help the Skins:

Williams isn't a perfect solution, but there aren't many of those at this point on the market. The Redskins cut O.J. Atogwe and lost LaRon Landry to free agency, so they're working to replace both of last year's starting safeties. They signed Brandon Meriweather and cornerback Cedric Griffin, who could be used at safety, but neither of those players fits the "center fielder" mold that would solidify the back end of their pass defense.
