Coach Bruce Arians intimated Tramon Williams will be starting ahead of CB Justin Bethel for Week 7 against the Rams.
It has been looking like this was going to be the course of action all week. Per Arians, Williams is "in a bunch of packages, and he’ll be playing a bunch." Bethel has been getting flamed in coverage all year, allowing six touchdowns, two more than any other corner charted by Pro Football Focus, and is the site's No. 99 cover corner out of 108 qualifiers. Williams is 34 and coming off a horrific 2016 with the Browns, when he graded out as PFF's No. 102 cover man out of 120 corners. It's still a matchup to exploit. Williams should see a lot of Robert Woods on Sunday. Oct 20 - 10:13 AM

Cardinals signed CB Tramon Williams, formerly of the Browns.

Williams is 34 years old and got lit up like a Christmas tree in Cleveland last year, finishing 101st among 119 cornerbacks in Pro Football Focus' pass-coverage grades. The Cardinals are desperate opposite Patrick Peterson, having lost competitors Justin Bethel (knee) and Ronald Zamort (ACL) to injuries. Williams does fit Arizona's defensive back mold in that he has experience at slot corner, boundary corner, and safety.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports free agent CB Tramon Williams is flying to Arizona for a visit with the Cardinals.

After being released by the Browns in February, Williams is still looking to play in the NFL. Despite going on his age-34 season, his versatility in the secondary should make it easier for him to land a roster spot. The Cardinals also met with free agent CB Brandon Flowers this week.

Browns released CB Tramon Williams.

Inked to a three-year, $21 million deal in 2015, Williams proceeded to fall flat as a Brown, turning in replacement-level ball, at best, in his two seasons in Cleveland. With Williams due $6.7 million between salary and bonuses in 2017, it's anything but surprising the rebuilding Browns are moving on. Going on 34, Williams dabbled at safety down the stretch of 2016, and will likely look to market his versatility as a free agent. Williams can also man the slot.
Feb 7 - 5:59 PM

Tramon Williams played most of his snaps at free safety Saturday in Week 16 against the Chargers.

He started off the year at slot corner but has settled in at free safety over the last few weeks and drew his first start there on Saturday. Williams has "taken a liking" to his new position, according to Browns.com reporter Andrew Gribble. At this point, we'd expect Williams to open next season as the Browns' starting free safety. 2017 will be a contract year for the 33-year-old.

Browns declared CB Tramon Williams (knee) inactive for Week 12 against the Giants.

It's Williams' second straight absence. Not good news for a team tasked with slowing Odell Beckham. Also inactive for the Browns are QB Cody Kessler, QB Joe Callahan, OL Gabe Ikard, OG Jonathan Cooper, WR Jordan Payton and DL Tyrone Holmes.

Browns declared CB Tramon Williams inactive for Week 11 against the Steelers.

Williams is sidelined as the Browns try to slow Ben Roethlisberger. Thankfully for Cleveland, the wind should help. Also inactive for the Browns are QB Kevin Hogan, WR Jordan Payton, QB Joe Callahan, LB Corey Lemonier, OL Gabe Ikard and OG Jon Cooper.

Browns CB Tramon Williams (knee) is questionable for Week 11 against the Steelers.

He's the only Browns player in question for Sunday's game. Williams covers the slot for the Browns. Eli Rogers is in play as a WR3, even if Williams plays.
Fri, Nov 18, 2016 12:02:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns are open to trading CB Tramon Williams.

The winless Browns are trying to bottom out by trading off assets for draft picks. Teammate and fellow cornerback Joe Haden has also been the subject of recent trade rumors. The Browns have until 4 PM ET to work out a trade. Williams, who is under contract through 2017, owns PFF's 75th-highest cornerback grade out of 120 qualifiers this year.

Browns CB Tramon Williams (shoulder) is inactive for Week 5 vs. the Patriots.

The Browns' slot corner, Williams will be sorely missed against Julian Edelman and company with Tom Brady back for the Pats. Also inactive for the Browns are QB Josh McCown, WR Corey Coleman, C Cameron Erving, C Austin Reiter, TE Randall Telfer and TE Seth DeValve.
Sun, Oct 9, 2016 11:35:00 AM

Browns CB Tramon Williams (shoulder) is doubtful for Week 4 against the Redskins.

Williams is the Browns' slot corner and was expected to cover Jamison Crowder most of the day Sunday. With Williams unlikely to suit up, look for undrafted rookie Tracy Howard or FS Jordan Poyer to cover the slot. Whoever it is, Crowder has a massive leg up. He's a locked-in WR3 with upside.

Browns CB Tramon Williams expects to reclaim his starting job.

Williams missed Friday’s preseason game with a toe injury. He’s still listed as the starter on the Browns’ depth chart, but has been practicing in the slot. Jamar Taylor is the favorite open the season opposite Joe Haden.
Sat, Aug 27, 2016 04:21:00 PM

Browns CB Tramon Williams (toe) will not play Friday night against the Bucs.

Williams suffered a toe injury during practice Wednesday. It is unclear if he is dealing with a serious injury, but any missed time is a blow for a player trying to reclaim his job. Jamar Taylor could lock up the starting job opposite Joe Haden with a strong showing Friday night.
Fri, Aug 26, 2016 07:10:00 PM

The Browns have moved Tramon Williams to slot corner.

Cleveland's nickel package is shaping up to field Joe Haden and Jamar Taylor on the outside with Williams inside. 33 years old, it's been a long while since Williams spent significant time covering slot receivers. He did so situationally early in his career with Green Bay. Due to the Browns' shortage of pass rush, there will be a lot of pressure placed on this cornerback trio.
Sun, Aug 21, 2016 07:38:00 PM

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi believes Browns CB Tramon Williams could be on the roster bubble.

The Browns purged most of their veteran starters this offseason, but Williams was allowed to stick around because of the lack of depth at corner. That depth could look much better if Joe Haden (ankle) comes back healthy and Justin Gilbert is something other than terrible in camp. Williams will likely stick, but the 33-year-old is not long for Cleveland's roster.
