Saints Hosting Free Agent CB Tramon Williams Tuesday Night

Update:

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports free-agent CB Tramon Williams will visit the New Orleans Saints tonight.

Eliot Shorr-Parks reports that the Eagles have shown interest in Packers free agent CB Tramon Williams.

  • Meanwhile, Rand Getlin reports that the Eagles are expected to add two players to their secondary in free agency.
  • Getlin adds that Philadelphia wants to want two cornerbacks, but could still use a safety as well.

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel previously reported that Williams had drawn interest from the Seahawks, so he could be a fallback option for Seattle if they lose Byron Maxwell to the Eagles.

There is still a chance that the Packers could re-sign Williams before the start of free agency on Tuesday, but Silverstein reports that they offered him a two-year contract worth $8 million, which was ultimately rejected.

Williams would prefer returning to Green Bay next season. However, he is looking for a three- four-year contract that would pay him an annual salary of around $5 million. Silverstein’s source added that Williams wants protection against being released in the form of guaranteed money.

Williams, 31, finished out his four-year contract worth $33 million and included $10,895,000 guaranteed with the Packers and will be able to meet with prospective teams this weekend.

In 2014, Williams appeared in all 16 games and recorded 71 tackles, three interceptions, a fumble recovery and 13 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 34 cornerback out of 108 qualifying players.

We have Williams listed as the No. 51 player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
