Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Rams are in talks with free agent CB Cary Williams to bolster their cornerback depth after sustaining injuries at the position in recent weeks.
Thomas points out that Williams was drafted by current Rams HC Jeff Fisher while he was the Titans coach back in 2008.
Williams is reportedly drawing interest from several other teams, so I’m sure we’ll hear more regarding other teams looking to bring him in.
According to Wilson, “several” teams have already reached out to him since he became available.
Unfortunately, Wilson doesn’t offer any specifics regarding which teams are interested in him.
Williams, 30, signed a three-year, $18 million contract that included a $3.5 million signing bonus with the Seahawks back in March, but he lasted less than a year with the team.
Seattle cut him loose on Monday, but given that he had base salaries of $5 million (2016) and $6 million (2017) remaining on the agreement, it’s not surprising to see NFL teams wait until he cleared waivers before contacting him.
This season, Williams has appeared in 10 games and recorded 46 tackles, one sack, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown and four pass defenses.
We’ll have more regarding where Williams could be playing as the news is available.
