The Arizona Cardinals added some much-needed depth to their secondary Sunday night by signing free-agent cornerback Tramon Williams to a one-year deal.

The 34-year-old Williams has 10 years of NFL experience. He played for the Green Bay Packers from 2007-14 before spending the last two seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He won Super Bowl XLV as a member of the Packers and was a 2010 Pro Bowl selection.

Williams has 30 career interceptions, tied for the fifth-most among active players. He recorded six solo tackles in the Packers' 51-45 overtime playoff loss to the Cardinals in the 2009 season.

Williams has at least one interception in all 10 of his NFL seasons, tying the Washington Redskins' DeAngelo Hall for the second-longest active NFL streak. Minnesota Vikings cornerback Terence Newman leads the NFL with 14 straight seasons with an interception.

Williams' addition comes after 25-year-old cornerback Ronald Zamort suffered a season-ending ACL tear during Saturday's Red & White Practice. Cardinals insider Darren Urban reported Zamort was on track to make the Cardinals' 53-man regular-season roster.

Sixth-year pro Justin Bethel is listed as the Cardinals' starting cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson, with second-year pro Brandon Williams ranked behind Bethel on the depth chart.
