The Bears announced that they have claimed first-year center Edwin Williams off waivers from the Redskins.
Williams (6-3, 317) signed with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Maryland last spring. The Washington, D.C.-native spent much of his rookie season on the gameday inactive list, but did dress for three games and made a pair of starts in the second half of the season.
To make room for Williams, the Bears waived undrafted rookie running back Brandon Minor.
