Bears released G/C Edwin Williams, waived LB Jerry Franklin and LS Brandon Hartson.

A fill-in starter each of the past three seasons, Williams agreed to a restructured contract in May, but was made expendable by the signing of Matt Slauson and emergence of rookie Kyle Long. Williams should make himself a part of the workout circuit.

Bears G/C Edwin Williams has agreed to a restructured contract.

Williams' $715,000 base salary remains the same, but he agreed to void a $250,000 reporting bonus. He's still due a $100,000 workout bonus. A reserve interior lineman, Williams played just 168 snaps last season.

Bears signed C/G Edwin Williams to a two-year extension through 2013.

Williams will wrap up this year with seven starts, all at left guard. A former undrafted free agent from Maryland, Williams has held his own in both run and pass blocking. He may be the Bears' center of the future.

Bears C/G Edwin Williams is being "groomed" as free agent Olin Kreutz's eventual replacement at center.

Last year's play indicates Kreutz has little left in the tank, but he's expected to be brought back on a short-term deal. Williams, undrafted out of Maryland, made two starts at right guard for the Redskins 2009. Pro Football Focus graded him out as well below average in both games.

Bears promoted C/G Edwin Williams from their practice squad.

The Bears are looking for some more versatility, and Williams play both guard and center. He is expected to be active for the game Monday night. Johan Asiata was cut loose to make room on the roster.

Bears waived Cs Edwin Williams and Tim Walter.

Obviously, they're confident in starting center Olin Kreutz.

Bears claimed C/G Edwin Williams off waivers from the Redskins.

Williams went undrafted in 2009 out of Maryland, but should fit the Bears' power-blocking scheme better than the zone-blocking system he couldn't cut it in for Washington. A two-game starter last year, Williams has an outside chance to make the club. Chicago's line has looked terrible in preseason.

Redskins waived C Edwin Williams.

An interesting story, Williams' parents were acknowledged freebase cocaine users, and Edwin was born addicted. He wound up playing at Maryland and made two starts for the Skins last year. Unfortunately, the power-blocking prospect wasn't a fit for Mike Shanahan's new zone-based scheme.

Redskins backup G Edwin Williams is shedding weight in an effort to fit into Mike Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme.

Williams was forced into action last season when injuries ravaged the Redskins' offensive line, but he's a long shot to make the final roster this year. Washington drafted three offensive linemen in April.
